Broker's Comments

This Leisure 29 is a very nice example it has clearly been well cared for by the one owner from new. The sailing performance of the fin keel 29 foot Leisure is very good.
They also have the advantage, over may boat of a similar age, in having the inner GRP liner so much better insulation and no droopy head linings. The sail inventory is exceptionally good with many of the sails being in almost new condition. The owner has also replaced the boom with a Kemp unit plus kicker to improve sailing performance.
