Broker's comments

This Alustar build Wever 53 lifting keel from 2001 is a very stable, comfortable cruiser, designed by Piet Behage. 'Avanta' is completed with a lifting keel, hefkiel, bowthruster, heating, air-conditioning in the owner's cabin, generator, solar panels, watermaker and much more. She is quite spacious inside with a pilot house, two cabins and a lot of storage space. Ready for long trips or even living on board.
