Broker's Comments

For more than a decade this De Fever Trawler yacht has carried her owners back and forth from the shores of Phuket and Similian Islands down both coast of Malaysia through the Malacca straights around most of Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Komodo, Flores, on eastward as far as Pantar and Alor, south to Sumba and Timor and northward to Sulawesi. Following a 2010 refit the owners relocated to the Middle East and it now looks as though they will be relocating once again to America and so have reluctantly place here for sale.

The engines having been stripped down and found to be in very poor condition, they are currently still in the boat but dismantled, the owners have had an estimate of 10,000 US$ each to rebuild them, so she is now offered at the fire sale price of 80,000 US$ and represents real value to someone prepared to spend a little time and money.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
