Broker's Comments

This example of this very popular Broom model is truly a lovely boat, lovingly cared for by her current owner she has been extremely well kept and maintained and certainly isn't showing her years. Perfect for long term cruising along coastlines and rivers and also as a well equipped live aboard. Very spacious saloon also has a second helm position and the with the wide side decks and large open cockpit she is easy to walk around. Possibly the nicest Ocean 42 available on the market and should be seen to really be appreciated. British Registered. VAT paid. The process for buying this boat is the same as in the UK. Boats can be re-registered in any European country very easily. Sale can be agreed in GBP sterling.
