Broker's Comments

Draco boats are well known for being solidly built, comfortable, seagoing boats. The 2900 Star has excellent accommodation, providing cruising comfort, with style. This version has had numerous examples of recent investment by the owner, including duo props, a complete service of both engines and valeting inside and out.

This boat is in commission and represents an ideal opportunity for fast, comfortable and reliable river and coastal cruising and further afield when the weather permits. When I visited the boat, I was genuinely struck by its stability, space and comfortable accommodation, with potential for longer periods aboard. The boat could benefit from some cosmetic attention and has been priced to recognise this.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
