Owners Comments
We are the second owners of this yacht which was built in Holland and sailed single handed to South Africa and back by the first Dutch owner.
Under our ownership we have lived aboard and sailed a six year Atlantic circuit. There have been many upgrades over that time and 'Felice' has proved to be a safe and efficient blue water cruiser.
