Broker's Comments

300 of these Whitby 42's were built over a 16 year span from 1972 and like many others, this one is a long way from her home in Canada, having sailed the oceans of the world. Purchased by her current owner ( an industry professional ) two years ago and refitted with the intention of long distance cruising with his family, new opportunities have now presented themselves and she is once again for sale.
The keel tank ( a week point on these boats ) has been rebuilt and she is offered complete with
charts, sextant and tools.
A blog is available detailing the refit on request.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
For more information on this Whitby 42 and other great boats for sale in Phuket, Koh Samui Thailand & Langkawi, please contact the Asia yacht sales team.
