GRASSHOPPER has enjoyed good care from her current owner who has maintained her in excellent fashion and upgraded her as needed. She is clean and will not disappoint you. She has the coveted Layout "B" with the head far forward, followed by a pullman berth to port, opposing settees in the salon with a fold down teak table and U-shaped galley. A great boat for one person or a couple to live aboard or go coastal cruising.
