Broker's comments

"True North" is a striking, one-of-a-kind, classic steel motor yacht with elegant lines. Built in 1964 by Hesselings shipyard in the Netherlands, she is very much part of the renowned Dutch yacht building heritage. "True North" has cruised extensively around the Mediterranean, Madeira and the Azores. She came back to the Netherlands early 2000 after which she underwent a full refit. The even more extensive refit in 2018 focused on conservation and making this yacht as low maintenance as possible. As well as upgrading the interior for comfort and ambiance. She is in impeccable condition.
