History and Refitting
NEREIDA was built for the current owner and was highly specified from new. She has been used only by the owner and his family, and always with a fully licensed professional skipper.
Following her delivery at the yard in Germany NEREIDA was based for the summer of 2008 in Varazze (which is a great marina and an easy drive for the owner to reach). After the summer the yacht was taken to the Trehard yard near Antibes for general warranty and service works in preparation for the ARC which she completed that year.
NEREIDA crossed the Atlantic in 2008 with the ARC and returned via the Azores to the Med in 2009. She had a general post Caribbean refit in La Ciotat and spent the following years based again in Varazze. She cruised each summer through the Mediterranean visiting Venice, Croatia, Sardinia, Tunisia etc.

After some short summer cruising she has now returned to Mallorca to be sold.
