NOW SOLD BY THE BROKER A very special two-owner serious offshore craft - built for a very discerning owner with a passion for sports fishing.

This craft has been well maintained by her two owners and is presented in good cosmetic condition with many updated features in 2015. A rare opportunity to buy a genuine 'offshore' boat at a fraction of her replacement cost. Prefect for chasing that illusive Tuna!
