Clients looking for a substantial northern European yacht of 3,179GT, on which they can put their own stamp with a refit, should inspect the yacht in Loano, Italy, to appreciate fully the yacht’s compelling potential. Only ever used privately, SARAFSA represents a rare opportunity to own a large northern European yacht at a fraction of the replacement cost when shipyards have new-build wait times of several years.
