This French built yacht is a very fast cruising yacht. An Open 42 design was chosen for quicker passage making and to be able to run from bad weather. Construction features such as a crash box then a 3 cubic meter watertight compartment for sails and kit plus a similar watertight space at the stern of the yacht make her almost unsinkable.

The owner is about finished with a full refit: all systems were checked and upgraded, engine was checked and cleaned, the deck was just repainted, .a new main sail is to be fitted … All systems are running well with the owner currently living onboard here in Malaysia. The boat is right now in a well protected marina .. free of any docking charges and right next to an inexpensive boatyard where any work could be easily and cheaply done. This great sailing craft is looking for the ‘right’ owner! Fast, sleek, in great condition
If you are interested, best is to come visit the vessel & check it out. Fly to Kota Kinabalu on Sabah (Borneo), Malaysia. The boat is located in Kudat, a short flight or 3h by road from Kota Kinabalu.
