THE BEST DEALS AROUND!!!
A very lightly
chartered and very well kept example of one of these sought
cleanest one available. ORIGINALLY by house proud Canadian
marine professionals who use her as their winter home ( and to
prevent boredom) their
vessel for 5
months of the year....averaging one charter a month... mainly
and charter clients from back home.
Then we sold her to a Boston based Doctor who uses her for his
family and friends and now that his family is getting bigger he
wants a bigger boat!
She has had her
FP warranted bottom job done some years ago.
excellent value for the discerning cruiser looking for a clean
well kept vessel to either putter around the islands on or do
some serious blue water cruising.
We think this vessel represents a rare opportunity to acquire
probably the best kept vessel of her type available today. When we
tell you why, we think you will agree with us.
1) Pretty much all of these four cabin Lavezzi’s and
similar vessels ( Lagoon 410’s etc) were built for the charter market.
2) They have been very successful. By 'successful' read
“well used”….. Around 20 to 25 charter weeks a year.
3) For seven years this means an average of 175 charter
weeks all driven by charter ' credit card' captains / one week
warriors with varying skills levels and thus the bulk of these
vessels have had hard lives.
4) They are ‘phased out’ after their charter lives when
most charter companies just give the bulk of them them a lick
and prayer of varnish and repairs and they are sold on. Some of
the vessels are properly phased out and repaired by some of the
companies…. To be sure. They have however still had their 175
weeks of charter.
5) These vessels have had an average of 5 to 10 days a
year out of the water when they have their annual bottom paint and
repairs done. Time out of the water is far more expensive than
time in the water on a mooring/dock…. Thus charter companies cut
costs and increase profitability for themselves and the owners by
minimizing this hard standing time. It averages a max of just
under 2% of their lives out of the water. Clearly not good for any
glassfibre hull. Few of these ever had the benefit of additional
This vessel was only ever in a charter fleet for three years of
her life…. Far less than the average Charter company contract of 4
to 5 years… (and then into a second and third tier discount
fleets for the rest of their lives from whence they are sold.)
She was bought at three years old by her previous owners ,
picky marine professionals from Canada who have a small charter
company there. She is used as their winter getaway in the islands
where they do around five crewed charters a year only. Every
single hurricane season she has been hauled ( only with a travel
lift… never a crane) and stored on the hard for the entire summer,
whilst they return to reopen their Canadian operation.
So she has benefited from the personal loving care of these
long term marine professional owners who have never let anyone
else captain her…. And it really does show.
The new owner Doctor David bought her and took her North where
she has been his summer Joy .
His family is expanding and he wants a bigger boat!
She has been constantly upgraded and now awaits her new owners
to live on and nurture her.
