Mikado Grande Croisiere 17 metres
- USD 220,000



Built in the renowned French yard Constructions Nautiques du Sud-Ouest, CNSO, founded by Otto Tiefenbach, this yacht was one of only three built to this pilothouse design. The MIKADO 56 was built between 1976 and 1984 and these yachts have explored many corners of the world.

The Swiss owners of 'Sealight Star' have owned the yacht since new. They last completed a major refit in 2009 in Phuket Boat Lagoon which included new teak decks, cockpit re working, hull and superstructure painted, thorough rig check with some shrouds replaced.

The yacht has an interesting layout, commanding pilothouse, great galley and great accommodation. She will appeal to anyone seeking a true all weather yacht.
