The best equipped liveaboard boat in the Med???

SY Liberation has to be one of the best equipped and well thought out liveaboard boats in the Mediterranean right now and the best part is she is for sale! This means her current owners have reluctantly agreed to pass her on to some very very lucky people. To build a boat of this specification from scratch would cost an eye watering amount of money let alone the time and planning that has gone into creating such a comfortable and easy sailing experience. There are so many extras on this boat its hard to take everything in but a quick summary of the main features :

• 4kVA Generator

• Full size washing machine

• Airconditioning/Heating

• Lithium battery bank

• Parasailor

• 3.3m Tender with 20hp engine on davits

• Mantus anchor with 100m chain

• Bowthruster

• 2x Power winches

• Walk in shower

• LCD TV’s

If you are looking for a boat around 40ft for a couple to spend extended periods of time onboard in comfort at a very affordable price then you HAVE to take the time to view Liberation otherwise you could quite possibly be missing out on the opportunity of a lifetime. Her owners have purchased a much larger motorboat to complete their circumnavigation dream and have already completed much of the servicing work needed on Liberation for next season meaning the new owners can launch in the spring and sail away.
