Broker's Comments

This particular boat is one of thirteen originally built by Kha Shing Enterprises Co Ltd in Taiwan.  The original length was 65'0" / 19.81 mtrs.  It is the only boat to have an extended transom which was professionally extended with the works undertaken by Tarquinn at Emsworth under the supervision of a surveyor.  It is now 72'0" / 21.4 mtrs.

The current owners have owned the boat for the last sixteen years and they have a real passion for maintaining it.  It  is currently one of the best examples on the market.

The boat was last lifted out for maintenance in April 2016, works includedre anti- fouling, replacement of anodes as required, hull polishing, teak decks cleaned and teak hand-rails varnished.

This boat must be viewed to be appreciated and is seriously worth considering.
