Broker's Comments

This lovely boat is ideal for a short-handed circumnavigation. The Aerorig sail plan makes sail handling simple. If your dream is a family circumnavigation that gives your children the best education possible then this is the boat.

There are thousands (maybe tens of thousands) of pounds in spares on this boat. The listing database constrains the pieces of kit that can be listed. For example she has two generators and a dive compressor, a sophisticated sonar; nothing has been left to chance on this boat. A new boat of this specification and size would easily cost over a million pounds at €275,000 this is a bargain and I'm confident she will soon be sailing the Seven Seas under new ownership.
