"Tide Chase" is a magnificent Trader 72 in first class condition. She has been well looked after by her owners for the last 10 years and has had considerable maintenance and improvement including the addition of Satellite TV, stabilisers, Hydraulic bow and stern thrusters. This is a boat with a "well built" feel and the equivalent new model would cost you well in excess of 1,500,000. Viewings on this extraordinary boat are encouraged. Lying Eastbourne
