Broker's Comments

If you looking for a serious cruiser you need to consider this boat. Coming from the well known Van de Stadt drawing board and a Dutch yard, (they know how to build aluminium boats), this boat should give you all the peace of mind you need to get some serious miles under your belt.

The accomodation is well laid out. The double cabins are well proportioned and the saloon has plenty of space. The electronics pack is high quality and there is all you need to plan your passages.

It is easy to see that this boat has been well cared for and thought has gone into its construction. Having lifted the flooring, the bilges are the cleanest I have seen. The trunking for the cables is completed to a high standard.

This boat needs to seen to be appreciated.
