PACIFIC WAVE is a yacht that we know well. She has performed brilliantly in her current ownership offering fast and rewarding sailing. She is successful as a charter yacht. In previous ownerships she has also successfully carried out this role and has also worked well when run as a private yacht.
The subject of a series of major refits through life, she has been carefully maintained in this ownership and offers a chance to own and sail a fantastic cruising yacht for a very modest asking price.
