Broker's Comments

This is a true Gentlemans Motor Yacht and the last Rampart built. Where ever you were to arrive in this gorgeous vessel be it Henley or Monaco you would command immediate respect. The deck space just conjures up images of Panama hats and frosted glasses of Martini's and Gin & Tonics. Down below there is still plenty of space to host another party, and the master cabin is bigger than some peoples bedrooms at home.
If you are after a classic motor yacht rather than a plastic jelly mould this is the Yacht for you.
