Brokers Comments

SANDY is a thoroughbred of impressive proportions and a head turner through and through. Her calibre, quality, pedigree, speed, elegance, stability, power make her, in every way an indisputable superlative, unique to the genre and size.

Coupling Bruce King's Talaria concept, Hinckley’s proven development of performance Water Jet Propelled craft, and the quality build practice of Hinckley's masterful workforce, each characteristic alone, excellent in its own right, collectively however, the combination of these various attributes offer the intelligent buyer a package that cannot be replicated elsewhere.

SANDY is kept in such fashion as to be immediately usable and therefore deliverable for enjoyment of your family.

This is a great time to capitalize on recent owner investment and care in this gorgeous yacht.

Not to be missed by a serious prospect.
