Broker's Comments

Traders were built to be strong, dependable and comfortable motor yachts ,renowned for their sea keeping qualities and designed to be used for weeks at a time with a proven reputation for cruising or living aboard.

She was ashore in the summer of 2019 when she had new prop shafts, couplings, cutlass bearings and stern gland packing as well as new engine anodes, skin fittings and antifouling. The flybridge cushions are also recent

Once aboard you immediately notice the space and comfort with all cabins having a light and airy feel. The upholstery is in great condition and completed in a tasteful colour scheme. The large fore and aft decks are a great place to sit and watch the world go by.
