Broker's Comments

Quite in style, the owner of this boat welcomed me on board with classical music. This beautiful classic has been around the world a few times. Her current owner has made her his base for journeys as far away as the arctic and Australia. He has sailed her single handedly on several weeks crossings and has adapted her in several respects to his needs. She has proven to be a safe and reliable boat in any circumstance. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Muy apropiadamente, el propietario de este clásico me invitó a bordo con música clásica. El barco ha sido su casa durante muchos años y su base para viajes a lugares como Australia y el Arctico. Ha dado la vuelta al mundo varias veces, navegando mucho rato en solitario. Está comprobado en varias circunstancias que es un barco seguro. Nota: se pueden considerar contra-ofertas.
