Malo 39 built in 2003 - A genuine offshore yacht for the discerning sailor, the Malo 39 is ideal for serious, long-distance cruising as well as living aboard. After a year of searching for the right boat, her current Owners found ‘Cista’ in Holland, where she had enjoyed the luxury of winter storage in a heated hangar and since 2016, the fresh waters of the Ijsselmeer. Now with her second Owner since April 2019, she has been boatyard professionally serviced and extremely well cared for, her interior in particular presents superbly. She also benefits from approximately £25K of upgrades to her inventory including a complete new set of North sails fitted in June 2021, Raymarine Axiom Pro 12” MFD, AIS 650 B transceiver, Raymarine Quantum Radar Doppler, Raymarine i60 Wind instrument and much more. 'Cista' really is in beautiful condition, lightly used throughout her life and is ready to sail away. Viewing is highly recommended.
