"Marie" is in the hands of her second owner. Her beautiful and spacious interior make it a joy to stay below deck. With full hydraulics, electric winches and extensive power supply she is ideal for a small crew to set sail for remote and idyllic areas. She is lying at the Ligurian Coast in Italy, where she can be seen at appoinment. With a little TLC she can easily be "made home" for the new owner, therefore she is priced friendly!
