Boat Details

The 588 is an exceptionally easy to handle, comfortable and fast cruising yacht and Arabella has to be one of the finest examples around.  A HUGE factory specification including generator, air conditioning, engine upgrade, 4 electric winches, bow and stern thruster, upgraded B&G navigation suite, plus much more.

Lightly used with less than 500 hours on the clock and immaculately maintained and serviced.

As the VAT has not been paid, this is a very rare opportunity for non EU residents to find a purely privately owned 588 tax free.
