Broker's Comments

The Bolero's were spawned by the incredibly successful 1/4 tonner 'Purple Haze'. As a production boat they have enjoyed much racing success and this boat is still competetive. Good all weather boats, with ease of handling a very noticeable trait. I personally raced this boat last season and everthing functioned well. I have a soft spot for the 1/4 Ton class having sailed Purple Haze from new and this boat is an ideal chance to join this revived class for a sensible price. An early viewing is highly recomended, but phone me for a chat about her any time. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
