Broker's comments

This Spencer 53 is a heavy weather cruising motor sailer yacht, ready to go anywhere. The rigging equipment is very reliable and is designed to perform all maneuvers from the cockpit. The engine has been replaced in 2012. The interior is very confortable and everything is well-maintained. Currently laying on dry in A Coruña, Spain. This yacht will be auctioned.
