Broker's comments

The Samoa 48 was for many years the Flagship of famous designers Van de Stadt Design. Balanced looks, performance and seaworthiness had many owners sold on their capabilities of safe long distance cruising. We sold this Samoa 48 for the first owner in 2004 and has served previous and current 2nd owner well. A true blue water yacht build with appreciated Dutch craftsmanship. This powerful cruiser is still handled very easy with electric winches and bow thruster, allowing a small crew to enjoy the good things in life. Broaden your horizons and let Blue Thunder bring you there in safety and comfort.
