"Windotter" is a much loved example of these charming Dutch coastal cruising yachts. She is presented in fabulous order, ready to sail! She is comfortable enough to live aboard & cruise.
She was last surveyed in 2017 (engine* and safety advisories all dealt with before leaving the Netherlands) (*water leak dealt with Oct 2019). Ashore, antifouled and new anodes in May 2021. Ready to enjoy!
