Broker's Comments

The Compromis 888 is built by the respected Zaadnoordijk yard in Holland. This long established yard build quality yachts and this boat is no exception.
Owned from new by her current owners this boat has been very well maintained and looked after.
Praised for her sailing capabilities and responsiveness she also handles very well under power. An excellent family cruiser, in my opinion better than most in her class in both design and build quality.
