Broker's Comments

I see many Yachts that I would like to own, but If i were looking for a yacht in the 40 ft - 45 ft range to go cruising this very pretty Meta Areson would be near the top of the list. She has an unusual but very attractive and practical layout for a couple with occasional guests, made from Aluminium which I think is a fantastic, if somewhat expensive material for building boats, she has an all furling rig and even a bow thruster to make boat handling a breeze.
She has just been slipped for a bottom job and appears to have been very well maintained.

*** Huge price reduction makes this a very desirable boat indeed ***
