Broker Remarks

A superlative example of a perfect match between performant design and extraordinary workmanship, the Wauquiez 48 Pilot Saloon makes for an ideal offshore, blue-water cruiser. She is a genuine Deck Saloon design, allowing for un-interrupted panoramic views, in true spirit of Henri Wauquiez’ concept of a pilot saloon, combining excellent sea-keeping with live-aboard comfort. “Amethyst 3” has been thoroughly kitted out by her enthusiastic owner for true offshore cruising and Atlantic crossings... Highest builders’ spec imaginable (originally exhibited at Paris & Dusseldorf Boatshows) and no expenses spared.   She is now offered for sale at an attractive price in fully serviced, ready-to-sail-away condition!
