Broker's Comments

For nearly 15 years the vendors have cruised both sides of the Atlantic and Mediterranean in this very well found New Zealand designed yacht. If you want to cruise in comfort and safety over long distances there is no better boat at this price.

The owners are leaving this boat with every conceivable extra required for long term cruising and living. There are almost too many to list so a visit to the yacht is an absolute must.

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