Broker's Comments

This is a well constructed, safe and comfortable offshore yacht. Built 25 years ago she continues to be in excellent condition.

Planning a circumnavigation or just long offshore passages then this is the boat for you. Her sister ship was battered for days by extreme weather off the Florida coast and she emerged untouched. I would rather ride the seas in this boat than a GRP production boat. This yacht has been owned from new by the person who built it and any purchaser is assured of a thorough handover process.
