Broker Remarks

"Blue Elixir" is a classic Fleming 55 commissioned in 1997 and first registered to an Italian owner in 1998 with an extensive European specification. She has recently undergone a major refit preparing her for the new owner’s long planned Mediterranean cruise, extensively upgraded and continuously maintained to an impeccable & pristine condition. Fitted with the original reliable Caterpillar 3208 diesel engines with low hours and a recent major manufacturers overhaul plus two new generators on a fully-refurbished hull with Gelshield epoxy protection. The Naiad stabilizers have been reconditioned, all hull fittings renewed and every other system has been either replaced, refurbished and often duplicated to make “Blue Elixir” as reliable as possible. There is a Williams 385/130 on a serviced davit, Besenzoni passarelle and gangway, multiple winter covers and new upholstery. Duplicated Time Zero Touch navigation plotters, Furuno Navnet Radar with W2K WIFI, CCTV, multi zone surround audio, full ambient lighting and dual routers for reliable communications. She comes with a full set of household goods, safety equipment, Med charts and a large stock of spare parts.   Extensive details of the refit process are available including photographs and videos. She is currently moored in Grand Harbour Marina, Valletta, Malta on a long-term berth, available for take-over.
