Broker's Comments

Boatshed Phuket are pleased to be able to offer for sale this beautiful ocean cruising yacht.
Designed by her owner and built using only quality materials by "New Dimension Yachts" QLD, she was conceived as a comfortable, fast, blue water cruiser, easily handled by a couple. She has safely completed a 50,000 mile circumnavigation and is ready to do the same again. The spacious, well ventilated, accommodation is teak with leather upholstery and there is plenty of storage. The engine room has a workshop
with work bench, vice, bench grinder/wire brush and provides good all round assess to the machinery, water maker, fuel and water tanks. The deep safe center cockpit has a hard dodger with bimini and side curtains, so can be used to sleep an extra 2 persons when required. A much admired modern vessel that is well worth considering.
