Broker's Comments

This is a great looking boat that has really taken its owners all over the world!

The huge upper deck space, with acres of fore deck lounging space and a large, covered cockpit mean you should be able to spend lengthy periods enjoying the weather, wherever you may take this boat.

The interior is similarly huge - the combined salon, nav station and inner helm position offer plenty of space for living and relaxation.

Separate fore and aft accommodation areas enable some privacy, should you need your own space and each area has its own head.

To sum up, the sheer size, flexibility and light airy space really make this an inviting boat for truly extended, blue water globe trotting. With some interior and exterior cosmetic work, she'll be a true stunner too!

This boat is still cruising, so her location may vary.
