2008 Hallberg-Rassy 54



POPSY was commissioned for her first owner in 2013, (Volvo delivery certificate shows April 2013 as delivery date) when she first came into use in the Baltic.  After only light use in Northern waters her current owner acquired her in nearly new condition in 2017.  The first summer in his ownership was spent refitting her to his high specification and when she left Hamble she was one of the best examples of this model we have seen.

POPSY has since cruised the eastern Mediterranean and finds herself on the market as a yacht that belies her age and fully specified for any type of cruising her next owner desires or can be purchased complete with her current excellent maintenance package and berth.
