Owners Comments

"We bought "Maggie" ten years ago so that we could spend more time on the water in comfort. She has been our second home for a lot of that time and we have enjoyed every moment cruising from the South Coast of Ireland to the Atlantic Coast of Spain and further South along the Portuguese Coast and into the Mediterranean where we explored the coasts of a number Countries and made many friends. Sadly it's time to move on to other projects, hence our reason for selling."

Brokers Comments

"Maggie" has been loved and cared for with meticulous attention by her owners. She has an extensive inventory and is ready to go on a new adventure. She is probably the best prepared Oceanis 473 on the market today. There are handbooks and instructions for everything on board. The owners are keen to do a proper handover to a new owner and show how everything works. Due to prior commitments the boat will be ready to hand over after July 17th. If you are looking for a boat to do the ARC or simply cruise in comfort, this is the boat for you.
