Broker's Comments

Not too many of these come onto the market and even fewer in this condition.
Currently on her third owner, she has cruised extensively northern europe and carribean and has had no expense spared as far as maintainance goes. Stepping aboard, the beautiful teak decks and well laidout cockpit give the impression of a much larger yacht whilst below decks, the interior is as unmarked as it is possible to get.
Original fabrics are pristine and as for the interior woodwork, simply amazing.
This is a yacht of superb quality and offered to the market as certainly the best example I have seen.
