LATOBE is in sparkling condition, and is fully prepared for a world cruise. With her lift keel, powerful Castro hull lines and high standard of build, she offers fast, safe and very comfortable blue water sailing and rewarding performance. Below she is spacious and very light and airy. The original build specification was extremely detailed and very full. Her owners are meticulous and have upgraded her considerably from this already high base line. Our service department at Berthon Spain have undertaken these upgrades and have maintained her to the highest standards. It is unusual to find a yacht in this segment of recent build available on the brokerage market. Nothing is now needed to prepare the yacht to sail.
When researching our purchase there were things we immediately loved. Firstly, the lifting keel. We were looking for the performance and comfort of a luxury cruising yacht with the accessibility of a much smaller yacht that could easily be handled shorthanded. Secondly, the contemporary functional design. The Gunfleet design is superlative; the helm stations have destroyer wheels so that touch operation of practically all yacht systems is unimpeded by wheel spokes. Transition in and out of the cockpit is unimpeded by changes of level, fantastic in heavy seas, living spaces are light and welcoming, with easy access to the engine room.
Twin rudders and the lifting keel in a beautifully balanced yacht gives excellent performance close hauled: even in heavy seas the helm is light and secure. The lifting keel means you can access anchorages and marinas normally impossible for a boat this size; and the stern thruster eases maneuvering and stern to docking. We have sailed from the UK into the Mediterranean and from our base in Palma we have happily and safely cruised France, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece. We made a great choice.
