OWNER’S COMMENTS:

Mary Kate has been a terrific family yacht to own. Fast but very seakindly, we have had some exhilarating sails with her in all weathers.

With her classic looks, traditional high quality cosy interior, and new modern day equipment she has struck the perfect balance for us.

However, rapidly growing teenage boys mean we must now go larger. We will be very sorry to see her go.
