Broker's Comments

This Trawler Yacht was built in Taiwan and fitted out by a German ship yard. The Traders are regarded as very seaworthy motor yachts capable of going long distance.
This one has two helm positions one inside the saloon area the other a flybridge accessed from the aft deck. The interior has a large aft owner’s cabin with en-suite heads. Forward of the saloon the forward cabin area contains a galley to port and a large single berth to starboard.
