Broker's Comments

The Carter 33 is a classic yacht designed by Dick Carter, one of the most prolific designers of the last century. Built by Northshore, who have a good reputation for their solid building process, these boats have a reputation as both a good cruising and racing platform.

The interior provides a variety of accommodation for 7 crew members to both enjoy living on and sailing the boat, in comfort. There is a forward cabin with a double berth and the heads are to port. Further back are 2 large settee berths in the main saloon as well as a quarter berth and two pilot berths. The vessel has good headroom within the accommodation areas including the comparatively roomy galley to starboard and a chart table opposite.

The owner reupholstered the vessel in 2019 and around 2010 there is a history showing a new engine installation, having little use since and new keel bolts and standing rigging.

The owner suggests that the interior woodwork and exterior deck could benefit from some attention, otherwise this is a spacious, solid platform for both racing and cruising.

If you would like any more details, or to organise a personal viewing, then please do contact our office and we would be pleased to help.
