Broker's Comments

"Catch your dreams before they slip away" - one of my favourite Stones songs from the sixties and so applicable to life in general; and Blue Water Cruising in particular. Too often here at Boatshed we see those liveaboard long distance dreams slip away as dreamers leave it just too late. Many factors conspire to confound the dreamer; lack of funds when young, a career and family later, they all tend to leave dreams of freedom until it is too late. This beautifully maintained and prepared steel built, go literally anywhere, yacht has had upwards of £50k spent on her between 2012-2016 (spread sheets available) and she is, we believe, as ready as any yacht can be to cast off and catch those dreams today.
You might just be tempted to rename her Ruby Tuesday!
