Broker's comments

Space, performance, reliability, comfort and seaworthiness are some key characatistics for this Contest 36 Ketch. An extensive technical and partly cosmetic refit has been carried out to prepare 'Alba' for a trip around the globe. Study the details and you'll notice that there's not much left to do. Will you make your dreams, together with this bluewater cruiser, come true? She is located in our sales marina. You're very welcome to step on board.
