Avocet is a 60ft cruiser stern boat built by TT Marine in 1992. She was last out of the water in 2016 for blacking, when the anodes were replaced and the exterior was also repainted. She offers comfortable 4 berth accommodation with the opportunity to easily extend this to 6 berth accommodation by adding a sofa bed in the forward saloon. The well laid out interior would benefit from some cosmetic improvements, which has been reflected in the asking price. A hull survey from 2015 is also available. She represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a good value starter boat that would be well suited for either holidays or live aboard use. Moorings are available by separate negotiation.
