Designed by Dick Zaal and built in Holland, this yacht is one of only eight hulls built as they were very expensively built. The purpose of the boat is to combine everything expected from a fifty-footer into a forty-footer that can be easily handled by one or two people. Fully refitted cruiser with a new engine and many upgrades onboard which include interior renovations involving re-varnishing of all woodwork. This yacht has been specially fitted and built with offshore and world cruising in mind. Due to the marine grade, high tensile strength aluminium hull which will withstand high impacts and requires little maintenance the boat is a strong build.
With an electric/hydraulic lifting keel with visual LED indicator, the shallow draft allows the boat to safely explore shallow areas, reefs and river estuaries. With a modern open stern access is made easy in all conditions and a strong fixed awning over the cockpit provides a strong structured shelter.
