Broker's Comments

Wauquiez Amphitrite boats are considered to be very capable vessels offering comfort and stability in both coastal and blue water situations. They are also known for their beautiful design and robust build quality and are an ideal family boat with plenty of space

The current owner of this particular boat had some big plans for her which changed recently when they went abroad to live. This boat would be ideal for a family wanting to spend longer periods on board, even as 'liveaboards'

There are still things to be done to update her but the current owner has already spent a lot of money getting things up together; a survey in 2020 noted that everything is either fine, fair or serviceable (available on request)

Early viewing is highly recommended - this boat has been relocated to Brighton Marina.
