Broker's Comments

At boatshed we pride ourselves on getting to know the boats. I have gone the extra 4,000 miles for this one, in all conditions inc upwind in up to 50kn of wind, I know this yacht. This is a go anywhere boat for the self-sufficient luxury cruiser. When the boat was commissioned it had virtually every extra selected from beaching legs to Cruising Chute. It has done two Atlantic crossings one with the ARC and the other with a PYDWW delivery crew. Some boats are such a pleasure to sail I have to reminds myself that I’m at work, this was one of those boats. Just as comfortable sailing in a storm in the Atlantic as entertaining while stern to in the Mediterranean. This boat has been viewed, photographed and sailed by Luke of Boatshed.
