Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Vertue is a lovely example that has not been modified. She is as originally intended and has been loved and looked after by her owners over the years. These boats are often referred to as 'go anywhere yachts'. They have traditional build quality but are simply rigged so they appeal to new and seasoned sailors alike. They are the personification of the Designer Laurent Giles offshore sailing experiences. Only a real sea dog could come up with such a marvellous design. So this boat is marketed at a sensible price to attract interest and offers.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Vertue II has been personally photographed and viewed by Suzzanne McDonald of Boatshed Kent. Click here for contact details.
