New Instructions – Marine Trader Europa 40 for sale

Thursday, 21 March 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Marine Trader Europa 40. Imported into the UK by the current owner (VAT was paid on import) this trawler yacht offers plenty of living space, a large fly bridge and recently refurbished and installed Ford Lehman engines. Stepping onboard is like boarding a mini ship with a large main saloon and equally large galley to port. Overall she would provide a very comfortable long-range cruising yacht or equally comfortable live aboard. The owner has upgraded a lot of equipment (including a 240v circuit) though there are still some finishing touches required to her refurbishment. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

It can be a tough job this Boatshed lark and March is no exception. One of the challenges of being involved in the Boatshed organisation is that in order to offer the local service that we pride ourselves on, we actually have to be in the territories where we sell boats and this means that each of our licensed businesses lives the Boatshed business day in, day out, selling boats at their particular international location.
