Broker's Comments

This yacht was made to sail around the world, and it has done it once already and is ready to go again. It has every thing onboard that you could need for a luxury world cruise and a back up to almost every system. It has been maintained by a professional crew since build. A good looking fast cruiser with a spacious light interior.
