FYS Comments

The Nauticat 33 is a well-proven motor sailer with remarkably spacious accommodation for a yacht of this length. A powerful engine and moderate rig make passage making relatively easy.

“Sea Forge” appears to be mechanically sound although is now in need of some up dating, saying that, she could be launched as she is and go off cruising in comfort.


In this instance Fox’s Yacht Sales are acting as brokers for the vendor.  The vendor has provided the information and whilst we endeavour to ensure the accuracy, the details are believed to be correct but are not guaranteed.  Any prospective purchaser is advised to check the boat specification thoroughly and to employ at their expense a qualified marine surveyor and/or engineer to check the specification and condition of this craft and its equipment.
