Broker's Comments

The Birchwood Challenger is a sports cruiser, with a good turn of speed alongside stylish and comfortable acommodation. The air draft can be reduced by the folding radar arch and so provides the opportunity for both coastal and inland cruising. The side decks and foredeck provide ample space for ease of moving forward, anchoring and mooring. There are four good sized berths, in two separate cabins and a comfortable heads compartment. The U shaped saloon has a stylish feel and is located next to the galley that has ample space for preparing meals for the crew and guests. This version is well equipped and has been dilligently maintained by the owner who is an experienced engineer. For anybody looking for a stylish power boat, capable of inland and coastal use, with space to cruise and entertain in style, we recommend a viewing.
