Keep Smiling is a fine example of this ever popular Oceanis 55. She was antifouled with new anodes April 2023 and has had a succesful hull survey for peace of mind.
She has an extensive sail cabinet, and has proved a faithful companion on races such as the Fastnet. She is well equipped for long voyages including the ARC whilst at the same time offering comfort and sea-worthiness aboard.
This is a great opportunity to start a new adventure and to enjoy this magnificently presented yacht. This boat has many options and extras, and the owner will be happy to spend time going through these with anyone wishing to buy.

ONE THING TO NOTE is that the tax is paid in the UK and she can spend 18 months at a time in EU waters before having to register in a non EU port. This process has just been done so she can for any non European owner stay in the Mediterranean or EU waters for 18 months as of beginning of August 2023. FEEL FREE TO PHONE AND DISCUSS THE TAX SITUATION AND ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
