An easily handled fast motor cruiser with good sea keeping abilities and comfortable accommodation. “Seagem II” has had three owners since she was supplied new by FYS and was sold to all by FYS.
She has been really well looked after over the years and is a very nice example of the type with low engine hours. Well worth viewing.
