Broker's Comments

A very large Cat owned from new by the same family. Prince Ranier of Monaco purchased one of these as a wedding present for Princess Caroline and even "borrowed" the cockpit table from this very vessel during the build. Since the Prince was having a sloop version built and this was a ketch, the yard filled the hole in the table with a Champaign bucket to hide their mistake! She is now in need of modernisation though she's been kept in good condition and all the NAV kit was renewed 5 years ago. All in all though she's ready to sail away to a deserving new owner.
