Cantieri di Sarnico Maxim 55  

One of the prettiest boats money can buy. This stunning Sarnico 55 is hull number 29 and I believe the last one built of the series. The quality of the joinery, gelcoat, stainless steel and engineering us superb.   You will not find this on any new boat today.

Great layout and space that is both suited to day boating and family cruising, with plenty of space to sun oneself and yet privacy to all three cabins. The Sarnico 55 turns heads in any anchorage and will continue to do so for ever. She must be seen and is seriously for sale
