Broker's Comments

Without a doubt this is my favourite boat in Cornwall.
I spotted this gliding out of the marina when I first moved down here and was struck by the elegance and quality and assumed it must have been built by our local superyacht builders. I have had my beady eye on her ever since.
Move on three years and she's for sale. The owner has commissioned a new boat by the same builders as he has been so happy with this one but needs a different layout to suit his changing needs.
The level of build quality is simply outstanding, its a credit to the craftsmen who have lavished so much care into every aspect from the immaculate teak decking, to the phenomenal woodwork inside and out. Theres even a custom built tantalus and drawers for crystal glasses.

You cant say "they dont make em like that anymore" because if you know where to look they actually do.

This boat wouldn't look out of place on the Riviera (France not Torquay) or on the Italian lakes where competition is fierce and has been named by Boat International magazine as among its top 25 best retro launches. Motor Boat and Yachting said "Its 32 foot of stunning elegance, quite a unique mix of old and new" and they are spot on with this description as she feels like a boat from a bygone age when things were built with style and grace rather than being designed by accountants.
