    Majestic 48

    A beautifully prepared Custom family cruiser  by Bill Dixon based on the Moody 471 hull. 

    'Majestic' was moulded in 1988 by Colin Burns and Vic Pascoe, builders of Eight 60' Round the World Race Yachts for Sir Robin Knox Johnston. This boat was completed by the highly regarded team at Osmotec and Blue Chip Marine based at Hamble Point in 2019 on behalf of the vendor.

    Sadly, due to unforeseen reasons the owners plans have been put on hold and she is now offered for sale with full RCD certification being prepared and VAT paid acknowledgement held.

    If considering an 'Oyster', 'Hylas', 'Kraken', 'Southerly', Halberg, Najad or Malo of a similar length then this boat must be viewed. This is your opportunity to complete the spec and set sail be it far away or near by.
