From the surveyor "The owner has been very faithful to his yacht, as he has taken measures each year to maintain and upgrade her as noted by this surveyor, and he has shown fine judgement in maintaining this historic vessel by keeping her in "Bristol" fashion and condition.
In the world of classic yacht owners, he has earned the reputation as a conscientious owner, accomplished sailor, and cautious mariner. S/Y Destiny is a wonderful example of a very fine, exceptionally well-maintained classic yacht.
