I am listing this for a friend. Please feel free to ask any questions. This yacht is in the same marina as me so I can be available to view at very short notice.
We don’t expect her to take long to sell. The first serious person to view will buy. She, as stated, is in excellent condition. Almost faultless. She has been maintained and improved all of her life.
She was anti-fouled and had new anodes and batteries fitted in May 2021.

The marina berth is paid for till mid April 2022

She is ready to go sailing as soon as she is sold. Nothing needs doing.
Contact me, Chris Southwood +34 622 55 93 92 (WhatsApp) or email 
I will be happy to discuss further and arrange a viewing.
