Description: Bavaria 46 Holiday - Cruise the Mediterranean - Aus Rego
Available for full or part ownership, this superbly well equipped yacht is your gateway to the Mediterranean sailing in the magical Greek islands of the Aegean and Ionian.
Faraway II was originally owned by the Director of a charter operation in Croatia - she was his private sailing yacht and hence has been equipped with much more than usual charter vessels. Ten years ago, she was purchased by an Aus/NZ couple who have enjoyed endless summer leaving the colder winters to cruise the Med. She is currently lying in dry dock in the Sporades group of islands in the Northern Aegean.
Each season the yacht is 'wintered' in dry dock. Prior to setting sail each Spring, the yacht is overhauled and prepared for launch. The same rigorous process happens at the end of each season and the result is a very well maintained yacht that is ready for her holiday making owners and their guests each season.
Far Away II sleeps 10, sits 10 around her dining table and is fitted with a diesel heater for anyone wishing to spend the winter aboard.
This boat sails brilliantly in heavy weather with minimal sail and easy to manage with in-mast furling and all lines come back to the cockpit meaning she is very safe and can be handled with minimal crew.
Why not join a group of friends for a yachtshare and own all or part of this well equpped cruising yacht. You may even have dreams to sail farther afield as Faraway II is Austrailan registered.
For more information on this fabulous yacht and life aboard in the Greek Isles, you can read the March 2020 feature article in 'Sistership magazine'. Enjoy watching her under sail in the attached video and photos. Contact www. Eziyacht. Com/yachtsforsale or call 0410 35 77 55.
