The highly acclaimed AQUASTAR 43 from this well-known and respected Guernsey yard - builders of a well-established range of sea going craft between 38 - 85ft. This capable cruiser has an excellent accommodation package offering the distant cruiserman everything they need. The comfortable living quarters are set out in a three cabin layout but one of her principal features is the wheelhouse environment which is both spacious and functional. The predominate reason you would buy an Aquastar is their proven sea-going qualities associated with the semi-displacement hull design. With a substantial power train, she will achieve a good cruising speed of around 18 knots with relative ease and still with some reserve power. You need to experience the inbred qualities of these craft to appreciate their capabilities.
We are presenting this craft in association with lead representatives.
