One of only ten of this model built by Salthouse in Auckland. A very comfortable and reliable ocean cruiser with a proven 'go anywhere' track record. She is beautifully finished below deck in Kauri - a rare New Zealand timber and no expense has been spared in the maintenance departments. Current owners are the third owners and have owned her 15 years. The list of upgrades is long and can be provided on request. Some examples include New Rigging completed 2020, new saloon upholstery 2017, Teak decks recalked 2015, new spray hood, Bimini and sail covers in 2016, copper coated hull in 2015. Sleeps 6 with two double cabins and two singles in saloon. Bow thruster. Solar panels. The owners aft cabin is full width and very spacious. This is fabulous cruiser that has been lovingly maintained, from impeccable history and originally commissioned by the boatyard owner. This truly is a peace of history and incredibly great value for money as a long distance cruiser for her advertised price. Contact Roger Bailey on +34 693 555 696 or email at [email protected]
