FYS Comments

Great looking, the Oceanis Clipper 423 has proved to be an extremely popular fast cruising yacht with spacious accommodation, an easily handled but powerful rig and excellent performance under both sail and power.

Croi Alainn has been carefully maintained and is cosmetically in very good condition, both internally and externally. She is very well equipped and really only needs the addition of personal gear to be ready for sailing.
