Broker's Comments

The Vagabond 47 was first introduced in 1971 built by Bluewater Yacht Builders LTD of Taipei, Taiwan to a design by William Garden, the master of the raised quarter deck, the Vagabond 47 is a lot of boat for the money and a very livable and comfortable extended cruising boat. The Saloon upholstery on this example is currently being refurbished and new pictures will appear once completed. Hull was painted, underwater surfaces anti fouled, new anodes were fitted and all through hull fittings replaced Aug 2012. Teak decks were replaced towards the end of 2011.
The owner would also consider selling one or more part shares in the vessel.
