Broker Remarks

We present a rare and wonderful Sovereign 400, only 7 ever built, by hand at Port Falmouth Boat Yard. The Sovereign 400 was built to a Rob Humphreys design which shows both strength and elegance. This example has a large specification which includes a windlass anchor, large navigation pack and even a spare mainsail. Huge amount of boat for your money. Lying Dinas Boat Yard, North Wales.



As you enter Souveraine you head into the saloon which provides a comfortable space for relaxing and dining, consisting of a large table which will dropdown. The interior is heated by a diesel-fired Mikuni heater.

To the bow, there is a double berth in within the forecabin, heads adjacent and to the aft, you find double cabins, with a second head. Back in the saloon, you have two single berths. Pressurised cold and hot water with a calorifier. Both the heads have a shower facility.
