Broker's Comments

Stunning lines, four cabin layout and a contemporary re-working make this mahogany 1965 a modern classic. Re-worked in 2006, she will turn heads wherever she goes and has versatile accommodation to suit both family cruising MCA charter (she is compliant).

Owner's Comments

“Two Like One” is an exceptional sea-boat from the renowned French yachtbuilder L’Esterel, near Nice. The shipyard has also built many commercial boats – for the French Navy and other institutions.

She is built in triple-lined mahogany, with a beamy, open fly bridge deck, and has been continually improved in her current ownership. With reverse-cycle air-conditioning, modern refrigeration and updated navigation electronics, she is a very rare mix of the classic and the modern.


RCD Status: Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) as she was built and placed into use within the EU prior to 1998.
