Aquastar 47ft motor yacht boat for sale

Aquastar 47ft motor yacht

NICARA is a great example of her class and has been consistently maintained by this owner. She offers superb sea keeping together with comfortable and spacious accommodation. She has lots of deck space aft and forward plus the fly bridge – well suited to Med or northern waters use. NICARA has seen use in the UK and the Med. After some years in the UK she was trucked to southern France in 2015 and then delivered to Mallorca. She benefits from an experienced owner and good care. May 2016 the yacht had a full pre-season service.
