Broker's comments

This Volker designed 50 foot decksaloon ketch is ideally suited for charter. With her ketch rigging she is easy to handle and her low draft, double glazing (from 2016) and full insulation make her suitable for the colder climates. She sleeps 8 in 5 cabins, there are 2 bathrooms and a very spacious aft cabin with a fully equipped galley and a large dinette for socializing. This Volker 50 Decksaloon was fully repainted in 2016. Built by the current owner from 1991 to 1996, the Mayflower is now looking to go on fresh adventures with a new owner. Note: the price is excluding VAT.
