Broker's Comments

This yacht comes onto the market in tragic circumstances. The vendor passed away just as he completed a branch and root upgrade of this yacht.

Rival yachts have a strong following. I have rarely seen such a beautiful and well spec'd boat come on the market. A viewing is strongly recommended.

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