Broker's Comments

This Dufour 485 Grand Large has to have the highest spec on the market today. The owner has spent over a year preparing this boat for a circumnavigation with world ARC, and has added everything needed for this adventure plus more in the last 12 months. There is simply way to much to new gear on this boat to list, and everything that has been done is excellent and superbly thought out.
The owners commitments have changed since crossing on the ARC and all that hard work is now ready for somebody else to take advantage off.
Its is unlikely you will find anything in this condition, with the level of equipment especially this recently prepared, ready to go on a circumnav lying in the Caribbean for this asking price.
Note:- The boat was once MCA coded but not chartered.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
