Broker's Comments

The Tarpon is a well-proven motor cruiser built to category « C » (coastal navigation up to 20 miles from a safe haven) and also made to withstand the trials and tribulations of life on the inland hire fleets. This example is the father of them all being the first Tarpon 42 ever built. Originally a hire boat it has since been converted into a comfortable, no nonsense, live aboard cruiser with a full beam master cabin aft, a separate double guest cabin amidships and a convertible double in the raised saloon. Central heating and air-conditioning prolong the season making this a boat for extended cruising with room to invite friends and family. A substantial price reduction and lots of potential make this a very desirable affair.

Le Tarpon est construit pour faire face aux épreuves de la location sans permis et il est de plus homologué, catégorie C.
Ce bateau est le premier Tarpon 42 sorti des chantiers. Après quelques années de bons et loyaux services au sein d’une société de location, il a été transformé en bateau privé avec sa grande cabine de maître, une autre pour ses invitées et un canapé convertible d'appoint pour deux. Fonctionnel et confortable il a permis à ses propriétaires de profiter de son chauffage central et de sa climatisation pour prolonger la saison de croisière et sillonner la plupart des voies d’eau. Un prix en baisse et un fort potentiel font de cette vedette une affaire à saisir.
