Please note: Marine Riley acts as a buyers agent on all overseas listed vessels and we can travel to the vessel on your behalf, do a complete video walk through with you, negotiate and complete the survey process and legals. Therefore, you don't have to travel at all.
We are also able to arrange the logistics for moving the vessel to another location or arrange berthing in her current location. Marine Riley provide a complete service from start to finish anywhere in the world.

The N52 follows on from the ever popular Nordhavn 47, with the 52 ticking the last box which could not be ticked on the 47...... The cockpit! She offers everything a couple may need for either coastal or more adventurous off shore cruising.

SONAS has had two owners in her relatively young life, spending much of her time cruising the Mediterranean. In particular, the coastal waters around Spain and the Balearic Islands, so she is more than ready to extend her cruising a little further afield.

SONAS, is the dream vessel for any technically minded individual or couple. She was highly specced from the outset, with the very best electronics package, Maretron Smart boat monitoring system and camera network giving all over boat coverage.
