Broker's Comments

Vagabond yachts are true bluewater yachts. This Vagabond 47 is in very good condition. The current owner has had her from 2010 and in that time has brought her right but to spec. He remedied the only drawback of a long keeled yacht by having a bow thruster installed. She is ready to leave on a long cruise this afternoon after provisioning. One feature of this boat which will be appreciated by experienced yachtsmen is her hard wheelhouse which protects the helmsman from the worst of the weather.

Don't hang around if you have an interest in this yacht. I expect her to sell quickly.
