Broker's Comments

This looks like a really great example of one of these imposing cruisers from Trader and her first impressions are that of a lovely, clean and well looked after boat.

Check out the mechanical section to see what huge investment has been placed in her underwater gear!

She has a roomy and safe feeling upper deck, complemented by by a practical fly bridge, to give you that extra vision so welcomed when coming alongside, or spending time in the fresh air.

Down below, her huge interior, put together in a practical and well tested Trader layout lends her to a really relaxed and spacious time on board.

She's been a much loved family boat for a long time and is now searching for an equally loving family or couple to use her to her full potential, which could be living aboard, weekend stays or much longer cruises - you only need to look at her interior space and upper deck layout to see what a practical boat she is, whilst offering some really beautiful refinements.
