FYS Comments

“Solitaire of Bute” is well priced and takes into account that she requires cosmetic tidying, mainly to the exterior woodwork and a good clean down on deck. She benefits from a bow thruster, new standing rigging, new GPS/radar and she had an engine upgrade some years ago.

We like the Coaster 33’s as they offer a well planned interior and as a motorsailer, will perform better than most of her type.
