Broker's Comments

This boat truly is a must see beauty!

As I approached the boat for the first time in a dry storage shed, I was a little confused at first as the owner told me that the boat was built in 1991. However, upon seeing her I was convinced that I was standing beside a stunning brand new boat!

The transformation of this boat by her owner has obviously taken place with no expense spared. And in my opinion, the work and craftsmanship that has gone into transforming this boat into what she is today has been carried out to the highest possible standards and a testament to the engineers and shipwrights who have worked on her.

The owner informs me that literally the only thing that remains from when the boat was built back in 1991 is the superstructure. Namely the hull and deck.

She truly has a new boat feel to her. In fact I would go as far to say she felt like being onboard a boat about to be entered into a boat show as a display model. And, given the build quality that I witnessed, and use of what appears to be materials of the highest quality and finish, along with use of stunning colours in her final design, all add up to one amazing boat...

This boat truly is a must see!

Don't hang around, as I don't think she's going to!
