Broker's Comments

Stepping onboard this Finnish built classic yacht is truly like stepping back in time. She has beautiful lines and a large open deck.

Below decks the first thing to hit you is the quality of her construction which you would expect coming from a Finnish shipyard. The quality and detail from her ships carpenters again takes you back in time.

She has an amazingly comfortable and homely feel about her and makes a fantastic liveaboard with excellent sailing abilities also.
