A well-maintained and nicely upgraded 1982 Nauticat 43 by Siltala Yachts in Finland on a Sparkman & Stephens of USA ocean class design. A prime choice of the 80s offering 2-double cabins, 2-heads, a separate converting dinette plus an internal steering within the “lounge”; she offers a flexible and comfortable accommodation for live-aboard or extended cruising. 

Originally ordered for an Italian owner, she was then on a Swiss possession and finally in her current ownership since 2001. Meant to start a blue water life to an early retiree, a new encounter followed by two wonderful kids brought her to a quieter perspective. In fact, after few years of wonderful cruises of France and Italy she remained within the Dalmatian archipelagos visiting almost every island and rock. Progressively meeting changing expectations of the family, she was recently offering the comforts of a floating “villetta” to her adolescent beneficiaries. In the end, having accepted titanium prosthesis and other surgical wonders of her skipper, she could not survive a crippling arthrosis with its reduced mastering self-confidence.
