You only need to look at this boat to know immediately that she's special - she really stands out from the crowd and her owners have invested in her heavily.

During the last couple of years, she's had a new engine, new bow thruster, new seacocks.

She's been completely rewired and replumbed. She has had new batteries, new upholstery, new decking, new standing and running rigging, plus her galley and heads have all been refitted.

With all of this - and lots more - check the extent of the equipment and finishes that are on offer - she could make a fantastic world cruiser - and in amazing style!
