Remarks : Arabella is a 12 metre Trawler yacht built by the Litton Boat Building Yard in 1980. She is very well set up for live aboard cruising with two self contained double cabins each with en-suite heads and shower/bath rooms and is well equipped with modern appliances that you would expect from a yacht of this size. A large dining and living area in the deck saloon is very comfortable while at sea giving excellent viewing. She is currently lying in Fuerteventura at a very quaint new marina which is a real bargain at a reported mooring fee of only 8 euros per day!!! With a comfortable and spacious layout Arabella is the perfect live aboard cruiser vessel well capable of longer distance hops. Her owner has cruised her between the Canary Islands and Gibraltar a few times and this passage has only used half of her fuel capacity !
