    Comments from owner

    Please note that the dinghy and outboard, and the clock and barometer are not included in the sale.

    This is a well specified boat intended for extended coastal cruising around Europe. She has extensive deck locker space and a useful bathing platform. She is easy to sail especially with 3 electric winches and the bowthruster.

    I have enjoyed cruising Northern Light in comfort around the Clyde and the Scottish Islands.
