This is a big volume centre cockpit cruiser that will appeal to the weekend sailor or the more adventurous cruising sailor. An extensive & modern inventory includes bow thruster, heating, radar. Well equipped, in very good order and viewing highly recommended.
In my ownership Cygnus has only been cruised lightly in the area between Eastbourne and Weymouth on the south coast. She is easily managed single handedly, very well balanced and light on the helm. I have had her maintained by a professional boat yard firm in Port Solent who have looked after her over the years.
