Boat now sold, thank you for your interest.
Ariana was purchased for use over a planned four year period to enable me to create a potrfolio of marine photographs. I am pleased to say that this mission has been completed successfully. Now she is for sale & hopefully will give a new owner as much pleasure & good service as she has given myself.
