Broker Remarks

Owners Remarks:
I have cruised the boat since retiring, mostly between September and April, and have lived on board it since 1995. Now 82, I am retiring to a motorboat.
There are +70000 miles recorded in the log books. The sea miles range from Shetland in the north to Tarifa Point in the south and Portugal in the west to the Gulf of Genoa in the east. The inland waterways of the Netherlands and the French canal networks are the main freshwater miles.
