Broker's Comments

This comfortable and superbly equipped boat is currently berthed in Gibraltar proper.

She is equipped for anyone who has dreams of a transatlantic passage and then an extensive Caribbean cruise.

Alternatively she could remain with her base in Gibraltar where she could provide year-round accommodation and be available for cruises into the Mediterranean.

The current owner is only the second owner from new. She has never been chartered which explains her good condition. This boat is worth a viewing such a well equipped boat does not come to market often.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
