and built by a local shipyard in New Caledonia named

wide to reduce pitch.

saloon with 360
degree uninter-
rupted view. The
flying bridge

signed for con-
viviality and to
share those
good moments

boat is
equipped with
two luxurious
heads including
separate showers and with spacious cabins. The galley is
arranged with large work areas, a fridge and many storage
compartments. The saloon allows different configuration of
sittings for day and night.

ing, great access for bathing--the ideal boat for any nautical
activities.
