OWNERS COMMENTS:

This Wauquiez 48PS was built to a high standard, and had exceptional reviews by the yachting press. We are the 2nd owners of Pipistrelle, and she is fitted out as a comfortable ocean going yacht. She has been expertly maintained and upgraded over the years, with a full service history covering all aspects of essential items.
Whilst in Thailand in 2014/5 new teak decks were fitted. Interior woodwork was stripped and re-varnished. Pipistrelle comes with an extensive stock of spares, essential for blue water sailing, and is ready to undertake further ocean passages.
