Sortie des Chantiers Louis Recla en 1992 c’est une version propriétaire 4 cabines et bi-motorisé jamais destiné à la location. Il a connu beaucoup d’améliorations protections d’hélices, propulseur d’étrave 24v installé. En septembre 2010 dans les Chantiers d’origine il a profité d’un pont et superstructure entièrement neufs et au passage réfection des tissus d’ameublement et amélioration des menuiseries intérieures. En effet il a l’allure d’un bateau très récent et bénéficie d’un entretien sérieux.

Constructed in the RECLA yard in 1992 this is a proprietors version with four cabins twin diesel engines and never destined for the rent-a-boat market. Continuous modification and upgrades including propeller protection 24v bow thruster and in September 2010 she went back to the constructors for a complete new deck and superstructure. The opportunity was taken at this time to renew head-linings, soft furnishings and much internal joinery. She looks much more like a two year old than a twenty year old and benefits from scrupulous maintenance.

Broker's Comments

Boatshed Bourgogne is pleased to offer this Tarpon 42 for sale. A well looked after and consistantley upgraded Tarpon 42 with the allure of a two year old not a twenty year old. No signs of DIY or bodgeneering on this boat. She was built as a quality, convivial and comfortable inland and coastal cruiser with twin engine reliability and manoeuvrability and has been professionally maitained and upgraded ever since. An absolute gem at a fraction of new build price.

Aucun signe de bricolage c’est une unité constamment entretenue et améliorée professionnellement, ce Tarpon 42 a l’air d’un bébé de deux ans pas une unité de vingt et un ans. Une opportunité rare d’accéder à un Tarpon de cette qualité pour un prix dérisoire par rapport au neuf.
