Broker's Comments

I often list 1980s yachts and more often than not they are either "projects" or need some "TLC". Not so in the case of this lovely yacht which has just returned from a post-retirement cruise of the Mediterranean. This boat is in great condition and it is clear that her owner has lavished love, attention and money on her. She is ready to start the next cruise this evening with all the safety gear in service.

This is a very well equipped boat which has sailed many thousands of miles. Her sail wardrobe is complete to say the least. She has wind vane and autopilot steering for easy of handling on long passages.

At her price anyone interested should move quickly to avoid disappointment.
