Broker Remarks

A stunning example of a well-maintained owners’ version of the popular Dufour 455 Grand’ Large model, this boat comes with a high specification and super-complete inventory for a comfortable blue-water cruiser. “Kittiwake” is a 2007-edition yacht kitted out for serious offshore sailing, and she is reluctantly offered for sale due to changes in personal circumstances. She has been very well looked after throughout her 2 ownerships until now. An annual finger-berth contract is available for take-over at an incredible location marina. Viewing an absolute must and serious offers are invited.
