Farr Nauta 72 for sale:

This Bruce Farr-designed racer/cruiser, was built by CCYD and Nauta Yachts, Italy for an experienced owner (yacht was originally named “Gibian”). The vessel successfully combines outstanding performance with a refined interior that gives the impression of both comfort and casual elegance.
While sailing, the center cockpit provides a safe environment free to view the action, while leaving the aft cockpit free to all boat handling tasks.
This pedigreed yacht has been well cared for by her owners and always maintained by professional crew. The beauty of her sheer lines is indisputable, she is admired wherever she sails or anchors.
BALEINE comes with tested blue water performance, in good condition with many upgrades and new equipment.
