Broker's Comments

It’s not often that I am lost for words, but whatever I say, these comments simply won’t do justice to this fascinating yacht! I have put loads of detail in the specification parts of this listing, so here is the place to talk about her as a true blue-water stalwart!

She has to be one of the most graceful steel yachts I have seen in a long time, and her appearance belies her inner strength and the feeling of security ones gets on first stepping aboard. Everything is well built, robust and no-nonsense, but the very practicality gives her an elegance that you can see a mile off.

The owners have wisely kept everything simple, because when you are many miles from port all the systems have to be capable of being repaired on the spot. She is also strong and easy to sail on long passages, and the owners tell me she has been well able to stand the worst that the elements can throw at her, yet she is comfortable to live aboard in both hot and cold weather. The amount of storage space and tankage has to be seen to be believed, she just seems to swallow it all up!

Owner's Comment:

“During our ownership, we have upgraded many systems, and continued to maintain the yacht in a condition which attracts comments such as "Magnifique!", "She's a beauty!" and "Is she really steel?" This is a boat of which you can be proud.”

Enough said!

Ring me on 07885 521960 and we can set up a viewing.
