BROKER’S COMMENT: This is an exceptional example of a very popular center-cockpit cruising yacht. The current owner undertook a major refit of the yacht including a substantial interior upgrade in 2014-2016. As a result, the level of finish is much higher than that of many sister-ships. Additionally, the yacht was used for only about a month over the two years of the pandemic. We believe that she is the best Whitby 42 on the market.
