Broker's comments

Van de Stadt Design, no introduction needed amongst discerning yachtsman worldwide. The Forna model was the next logical step with the latest design innovations. Well balanced, safe and reliable sea-keeping and an absolute joy to sail in both light and more adverse conditions. This custom Forna has more headroom, interior and stowage space with extra speed as a bonus. Her composite construction is light, yet strong and is ideal for custom built yachts. Excellent materials and hardware were used.
