General History

Originally the UK Dealerships model for the 2002 Earls Court and 2003 Southampton Boat Shows 'Padraigin' has an extremely full fit-out internally and has been superbly maintained by her fastidious sole owner since her launch in 2003.  With just the owners onboard she has cruised UK to the Mediterranean via the Atlantic coast of France, Spain and Portugal before entering the Med at Gibraltar. Continuing their voyage along the Mediterranean coast of Spain, France and Italy, crossing the Adriatic to Corfu, Greece then South to the Peloponnese, into the Aegean sea, returning via The Corinth Canal and now based at Lefkas Marina in the Ionian, a beautiful cruising ground, Padraigin is the ideal size and economic vessel able to access all harbours and anchorages whilst providing long term live aboard capability.

Built 2002 by Grand Banks Yachts, Europa 42 - Hull number 1488 Length 13.87 Metres 6 Berths 

Extremely well built and quality equipment fitted throughout. Immaculately maintained, large interior volume and sheltered exterior space.
