Broker's Comments

This a traditional beauty. I have seen photos of this boat in Hong Kong, the Philipines and Thailand. She has been everywhere. This is a beautiful traditional blue water cruiser. This particular Hudson Force 50 is nearing the end of a thorough refit and should soon be ready to depart on another circumnavigation under new ownership.

If you need space for family and friends, a solid long keel traditional boat that turns heads then this is the boat for you.
