Remarks This yacht was refit in March and April 2016. The hull is sound, having been fully checked by ultrasound. Originally from Holland, this yacht returned to Europe twice so it has sailed two-and-a-half-times around the world and has called Fiji home for approximately the past 27 years.
Extensive work during the 2016 refit.
Eight new low-drag zinc anodes attached to the hull during 2016 refit.
Fully professionally repainted, and anti-fouled, she is a beautiful looking yacht with very smart lines in great condition. If you are looking for a yacht that performs well, is a pleasure to sail and that would take you anywhere, then this one for you.
A safe vessel with a very good quality steel hull and good draught, this is a great boat for new sailors and old salts equally.
