2002 Privilege 435 Easy Cruise

2 December, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

This 2002 Privilege 435 (now called the 445) has beeen well cared for and extensively cruised by her current and original owners, who were lucky enough to be able to visit the factory several times during construction. They picked the boat up in France and delivered her on her own bottom to St Lucia on an unforgettable 17 day crossing from the Canaries. After years of cruising the Caribbean, the sellers undertook and completed a circumnavigation in 2010-11. This fully found and completely comfortable cruising cat is only on the maket because the owners have run out of places they want to sail!
