Broker's Comments

"Kelpie" is a very tidy example of the Channel Islands 22, a craft with a superb reputation for sure footed handling at sea. The twin diesel engines make for stress free handling in close quarters and provide reassurance should you choose to undertake longer voyages, something these craft are well proven to undertake.

In current and conscientious ownership since 2003, "Kelpie" has enjoyed regular servicing by a reputable marine engineer. She has taken the owners on numerous trips via the Solent as far as Portsmouth to the east and Weymouth to the west.

The vendor is not as agile now as he would like to be and has reluctantly decided to hang up his boating hat..
