A magnificent cruiser which is both well equipped and capable of taking you to most places in safety and comfort. This twin screw example built in 2003 and commissioned in 2004 has had two fastidious owners who have been proud to have cherished her and she has been the subject of much head turning on the English and French coastlines. Her very reliable Caterpillar 420HP diesel engines have been lovingly maintained and she is looking for a new owner to take her on her next adventure.
