Broker's Comments

This Danish built sloop is an offshore blue water racer/cruiser that has been through a total refit between 2005 and 2009. She has nine out of ten "Simply Indispensible" options as written about in this months Cruising World page 62. There are so many options on board you will not need to add a thing but your clothes! Sailed by a licensed Captain, the owner has taken very good care of her and it shows!
