This stunning Sunliner is hugely attractive in every way, from her sheer capability and strong semi-displacement hull qualities to her spacious and well appointed accommodation. She is also beautifully finished offering superb live-aboard potential. Designed with the warmer climes of the Med in mind she is also equally capable in more inclement Atlantic seas. With plenty of non-standard extra features she presents a very high quality feel and this is evident from the moment you walk on deck. Boasting sturdy Caterpillar engines she has been lovingly maintained and has age very much on her side, in view of such meticulous care she comes very highly recommended.She has a comprehensive specification which includes reverse cycle air conditioning, a hydraulic passerelle, bow and stern thrusters as well as tender and stainless steel crane.
