Broker's comments

Constructed in the 1930's by the famous Stephens Bros yard, this typical Commuter style motor yacht is a yacht that truly deserves the title "Eyecatcher". I apologize for the times we used that word in previous advertisements. With her current owner since 2007, she went a complete, but very sympathetic restoration from top to bottom. And he means literally, nothing was left untouched but all in phase with her original build quality and classic character. This unique 43' Commuter is now available for the truly discerning yachtsman. Delivery 0-vat basis for export or commercial use is possible.
