SHADOW is an extraordinary sailing machine. She is light, fast, well balanced and was built for rewarding sailing for her owner and his guests in all conditions. Her interior is light, airy and simply a nice place in which to spend time. She has been meticulously maintained from launch and 2015 sees a series of significant updates together with a spectacular new wardrobe. Equally at home cruising or on the regatta circuit, she also comes with an eye catching livery and sleek good looks. She is professionally maintained and she is inly used privately. Despite her performance potential she has never been raced. Her lifting keel gives her the potential to enjoy many private ports and anchorages in the Mediterranean without worrying about draft. Her sail handling systems are easily managed and she offers the opportunity for rewarding sailing even in very light airs.
