One of the last Mitchell 31 MkIII’s built LOWENNA has an exceptionally high specification for the class. A classic semi-displacement design providing economy and excellent sea keeping qualities. Well kept and presented she is offered in sail away condition with a full inventory.

Offering comfortable accommodation for a couple with an additional occasional double berth to accommodate guests when required.
