History The boat was built and specified for a german owner who had her from new till 2002, she was then sold to a UK owner who kept her in Brighton, James Dickens Marine Ltd then sold her to her current owners in 2007 who cruised her up the east coast to Scotalnd where she berthed for a while before coming back south and being shipped to Athens and across to Corfu, some 8 years or so ago. The owners have loved her, but are now buying a house in Corfu, and so dont have need of such a large boat. She has been lifted and antifouled, had anodes looked after, and has bee generally well maintained. Of late, 13 NEW batteries!, 2 new hatches in the aft cabin, ALL new lights and switches and new sockets fitted, NEW stern Thruster, New water pressure pump, REPLACED all beds, New curtains, new Bimini canvas, new aft deck canvas "curtain set" new Vinyl wrap Decal sets allaround the exterior, and through Cabin Head boards, very Much "Up Together"!! as well as engine and generator services, aft air con control unit just replaced.
Broker's Comments

Quiet a craft, and as a 1995 boat she is still stylish and very comfortable, and with just 1300 running hours her MAN's have lots of life in. Great value boating, when a replacement similar craft is going to be around 2 Million. even a 2016 Squadron 65 is well over a million, she does make excellent sense. The owner might even consider selling just half a share as he lives there, and that could be an excellent arrangement all round! watch the Videowalks, ( sorry about the Creeking phone case!!) exterior ,https://youtu.be/PN9bZ0j5-AE or her interior at ; https://youtu.be/_E4OHiBnKnI better still, fly out from Gatwick to Corfu, and she is 15/20 mins from the airport,
