Broker's Comments

This Custom 50 is of wood and GRP composite and feels solid, and with large beam it has a lot of deck and cockpit space, with voluminous interior.

The saloon is light and airy with excellent enclosed galley. The aft cabin is vast and again with a lot of light and en suite heads.

The 110hp Yanmar Engine was new in 2018.

Recent survey Sept 2022.
