Monte Carlo 43 - USD 49,950


A new engine, hydraulic gearbox and generator puts this yacht in front of many second hand yachts. For a 43 foot centre cockpit yacht she packs a great deal of space and accommodation. There are three excellent cabins and a very comfortable saloon. Very much an offshore type, there is good security on deck, sturdy stainless grabs over all dorades, granny bars plus good feedom of movement. She has an encapsulated keel, keel stepped mast and will appeal to anyone seeking a sea kindly yacht.

She lost her mast at the spreaders in 2015 and the mast has been re sleeved, new spreaders, eight new chainplates and the rig as a whole is now beyond doubt.


Last haul out August 2016,
