Broker Remarks

Known for its comfortable volumes & seaworthiness, the Trader 535 Signature is a true live-aboard classic which are extremely rare to come on the market. An evergreen go-anywhere blue-water cruising yacht, this exceptional example has been fully refitted during 2009-12 and again upgraded 2019-2020. Her extensive “home-from-home” outfit and inventory makes her a truly attractive proposal, especially given her central Mediterranean location. Must be seen to be truly appreciated!
