This beautiful Vitech 72 was the main support boat for the GBR Challenge for the Americas cup in 2002. She would make an ideal corporate charter vessel for UK waters or would be an extremely well appointed private yacht. This is a luxury motoryacht with a very interesting history and must be seen to be fully appreciated. She has undergone some major updating work in 2008 and subsequently which includes the stripping of all decks and re-sealing to bring them up to an imaculate finnish. The galley has now got a Kenwood range in place.
