Owner Comments

The owner couple sailed over 76,000 nautical miles in 15 years, including around the world, we could in any situation without problems sail for two. The ship can sail any course excellent. On the wind heeling very little, so she gives a sense of security and provides comfortable sailing. The vessel is fully equipped for all maritime projects worldwide.
