1978 Rustler 31

London, United Kingdom

£15,000

The Rustler 31 is a traditional, classic long-keeled cruiser with pretty lines and excellent performance and has a deserved reputation for coping with the very worst weather. Mesecina has been well cared for and upgraded in recent years with diesel warm air heating, new upholstery and autopilot. She is in good condition for her year and has been priced competitively to allow her next owner to upgrade sails and other areas to suit their needs.
