Broker Remarks

VIDA NUEVA is a go-anywhere blue water yacht that just needs finishing inside. The current owner bought her about 5 years ago and embarked on a project to refit the interior, including fitting a brand new engine. The state of play at present is that the shell is there for a 3/4/5 cabin cruising yacht that has the robust nature to be taken just about anywhere. She looks purposeful and we doubt that the roaring forties would get the better of this boat!

She just needs someone that loves DIY, loves sailing, and wants a large ketch to live onboard and to put his/her own special touch to finish.

Hull has just been repainted white, which makes her look very elegant.  An ideal liveaboard.
