One owner from new and price reduced to sell, built by Aquastar to the highest of standards in 2009. Kardamena is a most handsome and timeless yacht, the photos do not do her justice. Beautifully maintained and with an exceptional and well thought through inventory for all weather exploration of Europe's varied cruising grounds. Semi-displacement yacht with all inherent advantages for sea-keeping and load carrying ability. In January and February 2019 her owners have thoroughly prepared Kardamena for her new owner. Shafts were drawn, new bearings and cutlass bearings fitted, shafts aligned, batteries replaced as necessary and she was anti-fouled and polished. Caterpillars show only 1,000 hours and deliver a cruising speed in mid teens knots even when loaded and a max speed potential of 21 knots. TRAC hydraulic stabilisers for comfort at anchor and also under way. Two Kohler gen-sets with low hours. Excellent full beam owners suite, VIP double and twin guest cabin. Outstanding inventory for comfortable and safe cruising. Crane and Williams JetRib. Upgraded hydraulic bow and stern-thrusters. Teak to side decks, aft cockpit and flybridge is in excellent condition. Specified and used by experienced owner and maintained by crew. Contact Stephen Abery of Ancasta in London for more information and extensive recent photographs taken by us when inspecting the yacht. Unreservedly recommended.
