Broker's Comments

For sale by the estate of the deceased owner who would like to see her sailing the oceans of the world again and ASAP. She has been in the same ownership since 1992 and has sailed from Australia to SE Asia, through Indonesia, cruised the waters of Malaysia and Thailand, before crossing the Indian Ocean via Chagos and the Maldives, then on to Red Sea and the Mediterranean, returning to SE Asia once again via the Indian Ocean. The boat has been based in Malaysia and used mainly as a live-aboard in recent years. A quality yacht from a respected designer / builder, she will need new electronics, except for a recent chart plotter, but represents great value and has lots of potential.
The information contained in this listing is believed to be correct but can't be verified due to the death of the owner.
