Summary:

The current owners have enjoyed the 15 years since purchase 2001, a complete refit has been performed to both the Hull & Machinery.  Extensive cruising both inland and coastal was enjoyed, with the added advantage of being able to easily tow for trips further afield.

This vessel has undergone a comprehensive refit, using quality materials, to a high standard.  She looks 'belie' for her age and will turn heads anywhere, as it has done the current owners 15 yrs ownership.

The Draco is a seaworthy craft and featured in the early Baltic & Cowes/Torquay offshore powerboat races.  She is great value for the price at    £11.000   and has all the creature comforts for weekends afloat.
