The Yacht’s Story
The history of this yacht is unusual: Built by Swarbricks , Fremantle in 1980, the first owner then spent many years fitting her out to a very high standard. When sold in 2013 she had just been launched, so was in effect an almost new boat. Further improvements were made – new Yanmar engine in 2016, Lewmar electric anchor winch, Raymarine Dragonfly 5 chart plotter.
