Broker's Comments

Here we have available a Caribbean 42 Major that is ideal for a livaboard. Having all the home comforts with everthing available and in working order to make this a long stay retreat. Some updates have been installed but a bit of finishing may be required. This boat is on all one level and can be moved with ease to explore the waterways if required. A nice big saloon area that has a sliding roof.
Please note that the free standing furniture has now been removed apart from the Oven & Fridge
