Broker's Comments

I like these Cobra 850 s which are a nice comfortable safe boat with plenty of internal accommodation as well as a generous cockpit and easy access side decks.

This particular boat is in good condition for her age throughout and the current owners have kept on top of all the essential maintenance and replacement activities. A lot of investment has recently been made throughout this Cobra 850 which make's it an ideal ready to sail option.

If you are looking for a budget boat or if this is your first yachting adventure, then this one is all ready for the new season an well worth a look.
