Broker's Comments

This boat was built by the current owners to sail around the world and for the past 10 years she fulfilled this dream. Reluctantly, they are now selling her and looking for someone who needs a fantastic boat for some serious sailing. The accommodation and the level of equipment means she will comfortably take you to wherever you need to go whether it's Calais or Chile. She has had a recent survey which indicates she is a sound boat, with all major services working.
