Broker's Comments

This Bluewater Yacht was built in South Africa and designed by Angelo Lavranos; and he has designed some great boats. This yacht is a very capable sea-going blue water cruiser.
Her current owners of the last 11yrs have now decided to sell her and head back to South Africa. They acknowledge the boat is now in need of updating and are keen to sell, hence the realistic price. Having said that, the boat looks sound and is currently in commission she needs some new equipment and a general update on the interior – lots of potential.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
