Broker's Comments

Walking towards this boat and when onboard I did not believe her age. Italian built, her lines are modern and she still turns heads today and certainly looks much newer than her actual age.A true Blue Water Cruiser she has been maintained, regardless of cost in her current ownership and was recently professionally painted and had her teak decks replaced. Her engine was new in 2003 and is only showing 650 hours whilst the generator is only showing 18 and is also virtually new. Sails and rigging are all recent and in good order and she is set up for short handed sailing. She has crossed the Atlantic, cruised the Carribean and the South Americas and all her journeys have been catalogued in a beautifully, handwritten journal of her activities. She has been epoxied below the water line so there should be no osmosis worries. With a good range of updated electronics she is offered in full sail away order. Realistically priced and seriously for sale, this boat can take you across the warm waters of the world with elegance and style. She is sold with a pre purchase survey, carried out May 2006 and by the time this listing is live she will have had her side windows (Saloon & Aft Cabin) replaced. This boat has been viewed and photographed by Phil of Boatshed Costa del Sol. Register or log in to see 55 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
