Broker's Comments

This Cleopatra is truly exceptional it has been restored to the highest of standards; in my view to a far better specification than the original boat when new.
The build quality is amazing no expense has been spared pretty much everything is new and also top quality. For example the owner took the trouble to import the polished stainless steel anchor from the USA, because he could not find exactly what he required in the UK. The Engine and Outdrives have been supplied and fitted by the Volvo main agents. The hull spray finish looks perfect and the owner again went to the trouble of getting the original Cleopatra decals made and fitted.
The owner is now reluctantly selling this boat, having invested a considerable amount of time and a lot of money in building the boat over the past few years.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
