Broker's Comments

One of the famous De Groot steel cruisers that could take you any where you wish in comfort or would make a great liveaboard. These are known for their build quality and this one offers just that in bundles. A very attractive craft at a very attractive price. Aft double cabin with en suite and large saloon with a leather settee. Recently serviced engines which started on the button, go on spoil yourself.These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Hello David and thanks for your comment. I would consider this boat cat B but others might differ. The RCD directive will give a better guide and you can view comments online but I wouldnt consider her to be ocean going at present as the tankage wouldn't warrant that range but she has certainly coped with offshore waters from Greece to the UK in the past.
Kind Regards John Stokes

Would a boat such as this be rated as Cat C?
