Owner's Comments
"Fastnet Moon" is an extremely strong, stable, secure boat and has a very easy motion in a rough sea with no
slamming. She is easy to sail in heavy weather with just Jib and Mizzen.
Her semi-enclosed helm position gives added protection from the elements and her large cockpit gives plenty of
room for entertaining guests.
She has been wintered ashore every year and her engine has been winterised and serviced every year.

Broker's Comments
"This Neptune 33 is a solid, safe and well cared for cruising boat. Her semi-enclosed wheelhouse gives
excellent shelter when needed. Viewing is recommended.
