"Blue Shadow" has proved an excellent liveaboard and competent all weather cruising yacht. We have lived aboard for 10 years and completed 3 return trips to the Mediterranean from Ipswich. She has been comfortable and easy to sail, safe in all weather conditions and most of all, completely reliable.
We have continually updated and renewed equipment in our ownership. She is for sale as she stands with all the gear and spares, ready for more long term cruising.
In this instance Fox’s Yacht Sales are acting as brokers for the vendor. The vendor has provided the information and whilst we endeavour to ensure the accuracy, the details are believed to be correct but are not guaranteed. Any prospective purchaser is advised to check the boat specification thoroughly and to employ at their expense a qualified marine surveyor and/or engineer to check the specification and condition of this craft and its equipment.
