  • Remarks:

    "Blue Drifter" is an excellent yacht, very well equipped and in an impeccable condition. She offers good sailing performance both in- and offshore, easy to handle with two persons due to her hydraulic operated mainsail & genoa, electric winches and electric anchor winch. She has a recent set of sails from "Hagoort", her hull has been sprayed in 2017 and her upholstery is replaced in 2017. She comes with chrome (instead of brass) door handles and light fittings and has the new-model thicker, sandwich, doors, which gives her an extra luxurious look / feeling. Stored inside almost every winter, sailed by a gentleman and ready for her new owner! This "must see" is now available at the Contest yard in Medemblik. Pictures may contain items that are not included in the sale.
