Broker's Comments

What Ever the Cost....what Ever was Required....and where Ever it came from...this Motor Yacht has it all. The words "No Expense Spared" are often over used, this is simply not the case this time.....your ultimate Aqua-Star Nelson 46 has to be the Best extensive refit from the shafts upwards, including the installation of computer controlled Stabilizers.A Great deal of money and superb craftsmanship has gone into delivering exactly what the owner's wanted........the only sad part is the they are unable to enjoy her due to work commitments.This is unlike any other Aquastar 46,She is quite exceptional and offers excellent sea-keeping together with completly revamped systems and cosmetics.If there was EVER a One-Off then this is It.......This boat has been viewed and photographed by Adrian of Boatshed Lymington.
