Broker's Comments

This yacht is reported to have made 6 or 7 transatlantic crossings. Her long keel and canoe stern enable her to press on in the worst of conditions. This yacht would make a fabulous long distance cruiser or a spacious liveaboard.

This yacht would be suitable for an enthusiast who has the passion and some additional capital to complete the restoration. The current owner (retired) acquired this vessel two years ago and under estimated the physical effort required to complete the restoration. He is keen to find a purchaser who can complete his restoration project. He commits to giving any purchaser 21 days of his time over three months to provide help and guidance to any purchaser free of charge.

Any owner of such a beautiful would be a privileged individual. We want to find the right person to complete this noble restoration project.
