Overview

A large and capable sailing yacht. She is an ideal choice for a round the world passage as she already has a proven track record. The case of putting right the few items that need attention is reflected in the price at which this classic yacht is for sale, however below the water line is now immaculate with a full back to hull antifoul just taken place in May 2025. Pictures on request.

Broker Comments

Beautiful Classic Yacht. Just had a full back to hull antifoul in May 2025. Pictures on request. So below the waterline is immaculate. Got to be seen to be believed in this amazing yacht for £65,000
