Broker’s Comments

TRICIANA is being offered for sale in full cruising trim ready for the 2018 season. She has been substantially upgraded by the owner during his ownership as he has always made it a rule that she approaches each new season in at least as good and preferably better condition, than the condition in which she started the season before.

Because of a change of plans, TRICIANA is now seriously on the market and the price has been dropped to an attractive level to encourage an early sale. The yacht has recently had a structural survey carried out and a copy is available on request. The hull thickness is excellent and she forms a superb basis for her new owner’s long distance cruising plans. She is a robust and very well constructed little ship that has much to give.
