This high quality cutter rigged world cruiser is set up for long distance single handed sailing. The cozy interior is craftsman fitted in teak and the three cabin two bathroom layout suits a family with children or a couple and occasional crew.

Proven long range cruising yacht as she was cruised to Australia from France by her current owner who also planned to cruise Chile, unfortunately business commitments got in the way.

Realistically priced to sell... Build cost was over one million euro.

Conveniently located in our hardstand display area at The Boat Works, Coomera, opposite the Galley Restaurant.
