Broker's Comments

From the moment you clamp eyes on this yacht you know there is something different and special about it. It stands out in the marina drawing admiring looks. Little do her admirers know that this Dudley Dix design has been built by single-handed round-the-world racer JJ Provoyeur. You can feel the hand of a professional at work here. All the systems are easily accessible for maintenance.

The yacht has been kept in tip top condition. Provoyeur swears by the integrity and strength of his composite wood and epoxy build technique. Don’t believe me come and see for yourself.

You can buy production catamarans anywhere but a boat like this one is a rarity and what’s more her price is extremely competitive. Go for her now so that you have no regrets at having missed out on a great boat.
