Broker's Comments

The Hallberg-Rassy 62 is a well proven, blue water cruising yacht and BIZ is a great example of her class.   Little used through life, she spent much of her life laid up ashore under cover.   In this ownership she has been brought to life and totally refitted with the idea in mind of undertaking a full circumnavigation.  Her new owner need only step aboard, provision and go.

Owner's Comments

We bought and refitted BIZ with the idea of a world cruise in mind.   As we cruise as a family it was very important to us that every component was checked and that the yacht was updated so that she would be as comfortable and safe as possible for our adventure.   However, our plans have now change and so we have decided that it is time for a new family to take BIZ on this great adventure.
