Broker's Comments The owner of this boat is an experienced Mechanical and Electrical Engineer, and his skills have been well utilised . . Able solid blue water type boat, with all the kit, and a FREE berth till May 2018 makes her great value I think. Watch the VIDEOWALK (which I took on a very Bright day TYPICAL of where she is now berthed.. !! by clicking the following Link, https://youtu.be/-CMc_yGwGNQ and I could easily have been tempted to her myself!! the Idea of buying her, doing a lap then selling her on a year or so later , having "ticked one of lifes boxes" ! , seems very appealing and extrordinary Value when a Secondhand Bavaria 32 is around the same money... !.
