Broker's Comments

This Formosa 47 is a true head turner. She’s a serious blue water cruiser offering ample space for cruising in comfort. But not only that: she has undergone a complete refit in 2012. Almost everything has been restored, renewed or at least checked. Deck sanded, recaulked and oiled, all winches serviced, masts restored and rewired, all plumbing including tankage and pumps renewed, all electric wiring renewed, engine overhauled, interior varnished and painted (including bilge and lockers). New elements include LED navigation lights, bow thruster, electric toilets, interior and exterior upholstery, navigation equipment with wifi throughout the boat. Can you really want anything more from a boat? This boat is a must see for anyone who is seriously considering long distance cruising in the safety of a fully refitted classicly lined yacht. French flag. Note: Price not negotiable.

Este Formosa 47 llamará la atención dondequiera que vaya. Es un crucero de altura ofreciendo mucho espacio para navegar confortablemente. Pero no solo esto: se le ha hecho un refit completo en el 2012. Casi todo ha sido restaurado, renovado o como mínimo revisado. Cubierta ligada, reparada y impregnado con aceite de teca, todos los winches revisados y engrasados, palos restaurados, toda la tubería, incluyendo depósitos de agua y bombas, renovada, todo el cableado, incluyendo de los palos, renovado, motor rehecho, interior barnizado y pintado, incluyendo sentina y estiba. Como equipamiento nuevo hay que destacar las luces de navegación con LED, hélice de proa, waters eléctricos, tapizado interior y exterior, equipo de navegación con wifi en todo el barco. ¿Realmente se puede pedir otra cosa más en un barco? Si estás pensando en una larga travesía en la seguridad de un barco con líneas clásicas completamente renovado, tienes que venir a ver éste. Bandera francesa, impuesto de matriculación español pagado. Nota: precio no negociable.
