This Otarie Class steel motor yacht, ZEEMEEUW is a remarkable boat that would be better described as a small ship. The engineering is first class throughout and the quality of the zinc coated steel is as good as it gets. The current owner has undertaken a major extension by building a wheelhouse onto the existing deck where the flybridge and upper helm position originally stood, and this creates the most extraordinary amount of enjoyable living space with a great view. The boat is ready and capable of going great distances at the drop of a hat, or, ready and capable of offering wonderful space and accomodation as a liveaboard home.
This is a unique boat with wonderful light and space and her next owner is likely to have a great appreciation of high quality craftsmanship and engineering.
