HUGE VALUE After cruising the Mediterranean, Southern Ireland, down to the Canaries and back to Spain, the third owner of this vessel is hanging up his sailing boots due to his deteriorating health. This is a brilliantly kept and solid global cruiser. The current owner has only loved her for the past 2 years, where as the previous owner had her for 20 years and she has maintained her in new condition.
All through hull fittings have been replaced, The tender and outboard have only ever been used once since new. It has a new petrol generator on board that has never been out of its box, a Asymmetric Spinnaker in bag that has only been out one time, and so much more. This is a fantastic buy for a solid go anywhere cruiser that is not too big to handled and benefits from being under 12m for lower marina fees.
