Broker's Comments

"This boat has had an excellent refurbish including head-linings, upholstery etc. She still requires a bit more but is in good condition for her year.

"Melody Ann" is an ideal boat for family cruising and will get you into more sheltered bays because of her shallow draft etc."

Most sailing cruisers on Irish waters are in the six to ten metre category and offer the protection of a cabin for over nighting and the Irish climate.
