We have been involved with MIDNIGHT SUN since 2003 when we joined her to oversee the refit in France for the then owner. We then had the opportunity to purchase her in 2005. We have loved owning this great yacht which sails like a witch and which has been totally upgraded of late. She has bee also MCA coded to Category 2. Her first Charter season was a great success and she was busy from 2008 to 2011- Now private use only.
She is easily run with 2/3 crew.
MIDNIGHT SUN is in sparkling shape and has potential for both private and charter use. Her pedigree is undoubted and she is offered fresh from a series of refits, details of these are attached to these particulars.
