(The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.)

Owners Comments:

We have owned Samarang since 2001 and covered nearly 30,000 miles. She has carried us safely and comfortably during all that time and that’s exactly what she was designed to do. It is now time for us to go and do something different and to pass Samarang into someone else’s care. She has always been scrupulously maintained and continually upgraded during our ownership and we hope that will show when you come to visit her.

When Samarang was lifted she was pretty much ready to go, however, the problems of the last three years have meant that she has been on the hard for much longer that we ever expected. Whilst she has continued to be maintained by a local technician and kept dry with a dehumidifier, we recognise that it will now require some work before she sets sail and this is reflected in the price.”.
