Last update of September 2014:
The condition of the boat is not like she was, she has not been sailed with for 5 years and that shows. So she defintely needs TLC but she is certainly worth it! For that reason the owner lowered the asking price significantly.
She is an absolute beauty and fantastic yacht for live-aboard and long trips.
