" A boat I and my wife always wanted to own and did not disappoint in any direction. We simply love her capabilities in any conditions and that is why we decided to fulfil our dream".
"This vessel has an interesting history being first constructed for an 83-year old Frenchman who was passionate about fishing and - in particular - catchingTuna. He had her built very much to his personal requirements, which included extending the wheelhouse roof to produce some shade in hotter climes. Maintained by a retained skipper, she had a charmed life based in Port Grimaud near St. Tropez until 4 years ago, when she returned to the UK. Lovely specification and much transformed for use in less hospitable surroundings."...Read full description
