Broker's Comments

Look no further than this for a real mile-munching globe trotter!

This fine yacht has been used for providing sailing instruction by a local charity and has consequently really put some miles down and enjoyed commercial coding and corresponding maintenance.

She's now looking for her next owners, who may be considering a longer cruise or possibly coastal work, and who will be happy to pick up some cosmetic work.

Coded until May 2023.

Her current owner used to have shared ownership in a 1971 Nautor Swan 40' and he considers the Standfast and Nautor build quality of an "equal standard".

Please note that pictures and videos were provided by owner, Nov/Dec 2022.

This boat may only be viewed on Sundays.

These boat details are subject to contract.
