Brokers Comments

The exterior teak cap rail, grab rails and rub rails all need sanding and resealing.The interior areas need a complete sanding and resealing of the wook veneer surfaces.The teak and holly sole decks also need sanding and resealing.

Electronics are few and all are older.

This Soveral 48 needs some work but has great potential for a new owner who wants to invest some time and effort.
