Full specification

'Wave of Maldon' is a superb example of this popular size of Dutch steel motor cruiser, constructed to an excellent standard and a very high specification by the highly regarded Flevo Jachtbouw yard.

She has a more seagoing underwater profile than normally found including stabilising bilge keels which combined with the internal and external helm position make her ideal for long distance economical cruising USING ONLY 1 LITRE PER MILE

Her layout has been designed to create a luxurious and spacious liveaboard cruiser with two very good en-suite sleeping cabins and a full inventory including all electric cooking, central heating, double glazing, washing machine, large fridge and separate freezer, genset, Raymarine nav equipment and more.

She has been maintained irrespective of cost by her current owners .

A great alternative to the more common Linssen Grand Sturdy 470 or Aquanaut Drifter 500 at a hugely competitive price.
