A pacious cruiser suited to the larger families or smaller families and couples who like lots of space on board. Due to her size she would also work very well as a liveaboard. A master forward cabin with ensuite shower room, a midships double cabin again with ensuite and a further aft cabin with two single bunks provide 6 berths. A further double is available by converting the saloon seating.

Broker's Comments

The Connoisseur class of boats have gained an increasingly highly regarded reputation for being a very well built and well finished cruiser.
Being 42 ft she has space in abundance for extended stays/cruises and there are lots of clever touches as regards the layout offering privacy with up to 8 on board.
The engine runs beautifully and the high degree of maintenance to all the mechanics is obvious.
The boat benefits from a current BSS until 2010.
These boat details are subject to contract.
