Broker's Comments

The MG Spring 25 is an innovative design, having spacious accommodation for its size and adopting the lower drag features of winged keel technology. These boats are equally suitable for competitive club racing and fast family cruising. For a 25' boat the accommodation space is very good, providing six berths, including a roomy double aft cabin and separate Heads with a vanity unit. The saloon is open and airy and there is a comfortable navigation station and galley area.

This version has been well maintained and comes complete with an impressive sail wardrobe, which contributed to its success winning the Mersea Island Regatta. The running rigging has been comprehensively designed, including good quality components and lines being led to the cockpit. The package also includes a substantial road trailer and the owner is willing to deliver the boat to a new location, within a reasonable distance.

This boat represents an attractive package, with wide potential. It is tidy, well rigged and trailerable and will be attractive to somebody looking for a competitive racer and or, a well set-up boat for fast, comfortable, cruising.
