Broker's comments

The Northern Comfort 43 is designed by Dick Zaal and built by Devo Mil in the Netherlands. The current owner of This Northern Comfort 43 has done a major refit in 2012/2013 by an Aluminium specialist. This you can see in everything that has been touched. Easy to handle, very good sailing performance, lots of equipment and a deckhouse makes her ideal for longer trips or family cruising. She is now on shore by De Valk Zeeland and is ready for a visit.
