Broker's Comments

Es uno de los barcos con más clase que he visto hasta ahora. Tiene mucho espacio y una distribución interior acertada. Sus maderas le dan un aspecto de calidad y refinamiento. Con solo 2 propietarios, el barco ha sido bien mantenido. Este trawler es idóneo como apartamento de lujo y además es muy capaz de hacer travesías largas. Sólo imagínese con sus familiares y amigos en la bañera de este barco de lujo… Nota: se pueden considerar contra-ofertas.
This is one of the classiest boats I have already seen. She is spacious and very well laid out. Lots of wood give her a homey feeling. With only 2 owners from new, she has been meticulously cared for. This trawler is ideal for a luxury apartment in the Med and as a bonus, she will perform well (though not fast) on long distance cruising. Just imagine yourself entertaining family and friends on the cockpit of this luxury trawler… Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
