Broker's Comments

Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this Palme Dutch cruiser with good size teak aft deck incorporating second helm. Perfect design for the canals as wheelhouse has doors to port and starboard side decks. Presently based on the Canal du Midi and close to Beziers and Carcassonne airports.

Exchange engine fitted 2012
From a cosmetic point of view, she would benefit from a re-varnish of the wooden railings and deck edging.
Fold-down windscreen needs a broken pane replacing.
Aft teak deck in good condition.
