First 47.7 with a white hull built in 2001. Powerful cruiser racer which is equally at home racing or cruising the oceans, an ideal yacht for a fast ARC crossing. Standing rigging replaced in 2015 and synthetic teak decks fitted the same year. With a large sail wardrobe and a good inventory, the boat offers much to the ambitious owner. Sleeps 8 in three cabins plus the saloon. Still in her second ownership and never chartered.

Viewing available 7 days a week by prior appointment, please contact the Ancasta Swanwick office on +44 (0)1489 854455.
