Broker's Comments

This Westerly Vulcan 34 Deck Saloon is exceptionally well equipped and well cared. Please read through all the details in the specification above' and you will begin to appreciate this is not an average version.
I will highlight some key points; the engine was new in 2008, windows have been replaced, standing rigging is recent and the instrumentation is up to date and very comprehensive.
The Vulcan 34's have twin helm positions plus spacious accommodation; this is coupled with their reputation as a capable sea worthy yacht they are quite rare and rarer still in this condition.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
