Broker's Comments

One owner yacht from new, this is a well cared for example of the Oceanis Clipper 281.
A modern yacht that could sleep six at a pinch but perfectly suited to a couple with a junior crew. Light and airy below, wide side decks and an uncluttered foredeck topside, she should be comfortable for coastal and cross channel work in reasonable conditions and I was already dreaming of the Greek Islands as I shot the photos! These yachts have a reputation for being fun to sail, are easily handled and quick and nimble. What more could one ask?
