Rustler 42 with the presence of a very capable ocean yacht that can only be a Rustler.
Commissioned in 2007, this is a fine example and the owner has done right by her. Used in and around UK and northern French waters, she has not been exposed to equatorial heat or the riggours of a trans-ocean passage. A good standard of equipment without being over specified means this yacht can competently undertake a range of challenges straight away with the option for a new owner to further personalise her equipment inventory.
