The minute I stepped aboard this boat I had the feeling of expanding horizons. These thoughts were further enhanced when I descended into the accommodation.
The hand crafted interior is beautifully made from teak and sapele and varnished throughout. It is clear that much thought has gone into the design of the accommodation and that a huge amount of care and attention has been lavished on her during her previous ownership. I have been aboard many modern large boats where you have a cavernous saloon and standard sized cabins. The proportions of each living space here are such that you are never aware of the overall size of the boat from wherever you stand. The level and standard of equipment is outstanding and you could spend weeks or even months at sea without needing to put into port. Clearly this boat is designed to go places and has already completed at least one circumnavigation, and that should be her destiny. We think it highly unlikely that you will find a modern boat of this quality in terms of workmanship and level of equipment for less than £500,000, if indeed, you find one at all, making this boat, at this price, unbelievable value. Yes, it is ferro-cement and we recommend you do your research into this construction method, you may be pleasantly surprised, I was!
It is fair to say that the hull above the waterline would benefit from repainting. Furthermore some re-varnishing on the external bright-work will be required, in line with a normal maintenance program. The owner is seeking costings for this work, however a reduction in price would be considered if a new owner were to take this on.
I love this boat, it really has to be seen to be appreciated, and the details given here only serve as an introduction. There is a very detailed brochure available, a copy of which is available on request to those who have a serious interest.
If you are planning a major adventure which involves leaving these shores, this boat has to be a serious contender. We feel that once you have seen her, the bar will be so high you won’t want to look elsewhere.
Note: since this boat was uploaded the hull has been professionally repainted and new photographs have been uploaded.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
