Broker's Comments

This is an example of a beautiful German Frers designed Bluewater cruiser. I was struck by the traditional lines and beautiful interior. I was also taken by her spaciousness which is more than I expected.

The vendor is an engineer and he appears to have kept the yacht maintained to a very high standard.

On Monday (21st June) the yacht is going for a liftout for anti-fouling and anode change. The purchaser of this yacht will acquire a yacht ready to set off on her next adventure.
