Broker's Comments

* New Bimini, Dodger and Stack Pack ( Pictures to folow )*

A big volume family cruising yacht, with a good handicap for the occasional race ( she won the Raja Muda regatta 2005, 2006 and 2007 ). Neglected by her previous owner, the current owner purchased her as a project, with the intent of chartering her, work on her is nearly done, but his plans have changed and she is now offered for sale. Re caulking the decks is in progress and she will have a Bimini, Lazy Jacks and a Stack Pack in due course. She has two ensuite double cabins aft and a huge ensuite master cabin for'd, plus an air conditioned crews cabin all the way for'd, accessed from the deck, with 2 berths, heads and shower. All cockpit winches are electric, making sail handling a breeze.
