Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a luxury go anywhere motor Yacht with every capability to stay in touch with high speed internet and state of the art telecomunications, You've just found it! She was originally sold to Demark, hence the grey stipes instead of blue. The current owner has upgraded all the upholstery and fitted all the electronics as well as bringing her up to date with her brightwork and polishing. The boat has recently had a new Bow thruster and air conditioning fitted. She is also undergoing the fitting of solar panels and low consumption fridges the theory being that she could sustain domestic power with a close to Zero carbon footprint. This boat represents a very serious argument for the theory of selling the house and going to live in the sun on the boat! These boat details are subject to contract.
