FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Launched in 2007 as ALBERTONE and very lightly used in both of her original ownerships, BLUE CORAL was bought in 2012 by her current owner. She has been used for cruising in Italy and Spain.
Her specification highlights are numerous, but particular highlights include:-
3-cabin, 3-head layout
Larger 110hp Yanmar option with updated hydraulic transmission
Recently checked standing rigging
Upgraded Harken electric winch package with german main sheet for three speed option
Max Prop feathering prop
Twin reverse cycle air conditioning system
Spectra Newport watermaker
BLUE CORAL is now offered for sale in 100% turn-key order as her owners would like to move on to fresh projects.
Our understanding is that the yacht is built to CE Boat Category A-Ocean.
