Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

An old yacht with no doubt many problems, but having said that she is 48 feet long made of GRP and therefore relatively inexpensive. As the pictures decalre she needs a lot of TLC, expect some osmosis, Vat is not paid (American Flag)and a possible CE Proofing if keeping in Europe. Perhaps a good project for those with time and have that certain know how !!

Owner lives now over the pond.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Ao registar-se pode ver mis fotos. Um yacht velho sem duvida, muitos problemas, sim , mas dizendo que tem 48 pés. Como as fotos mostram ela precisa de muito trabalho e paciencia, tem a bandeira Americana significa que tem que fazer mais alguns gastos se ficar na Europa. Talvez seja um bom projecto para quem tem tempo ,e algum conhecimento de barcos para o poder reparar.

Nota: Ofertas sobre o preço original serão consideradas.
