Broker's Comments

This solid old lady was built to provide comfort and safety on your adventures, voyages and travels.

Her spacious accommodation provides enough berths for 10. She has 3 separate heads each with showers and basins, a well-equipped galley and a large comfortable saloon. All in all, an ideal long term family cruiser/ live aboard.

Although not the swiftest Cat off the mark, her Nav fit is extensive and she is well equipped for long terms at sea, at anchor or alongside. Her solid construction and internal woodwork was done to a high standard in it’s day and she has been well maintained throughout.

I’m told that Prince Rainier of Monaco purchased one of these vessels as a wedding present for Princess Caroline.
