Owner's Comments

When we decided to get a bigger yacht, after owning a Sigma 41 for 15 years, we started looking at 52 to 55 footers. Through Berthon we saw SIESTA, a VR 65, and the rest is history. It was my wife, especially, who was very enthusiastic when she could see the increased space, both above and below deck. She also has mobility problems, so the absence of a bridge deck and level cabin sole with no steps up and down, were great plus points.


LOLA K is a light, easily handled yacht who might suit potential buyers with slightly less than extravagant ambitions. 

Broker's Comments

LOLA K offers fast and safe sailing for modest crews and is a real alternative to the production option often chosen for Mediterranean sailing. She is still in her first ownership and has given enormous pleasure and additional waterline length makes for easy relaxed passages.  She has plenty of space for enjoying life aboard alfresco. She is offered at a very modest asking price and turns heads where ever she goes. She has a light wood interior and lovely family layout.
