Pilot 50A (2000-2002) - €492.500,-

Unique all-aluminium, fast and seaworthy motor yacht of 15 metres in excellent condition and very well documented. The only aluminium VDL Pilot 50 with two times 375 HP Volvo Penta engines. Designed by Willem Nieland and built by VDL in Waalwijk. 

The stylish, cherry wood interior makes a pleasant impression. For a longer stay, the ship is equipped with all the luxury one would expect on a ship like this. With the large aft deck (with cover), the spacious wheelhouse and the comfortable saloon downstairs, the ship has a lot of living space. Also the three sleeping cabins offer enough privacy. 

The current owner has made many long voyages with this ship on both on inland waterways and off shore, but given his age this is now coming to an end. The ship can go via inland waterways to the Mediterranean so it is suitable to sail through the French canals, which enlarges the sailing area enormously. Berlin can be reached via the German canals and via the Rhine and the Main de Danube and the Black Sea. A crossing to England or the Baltic Sea is also possible. Partly because of this, former sailors will also be interested in this sporty ship. At a young age, it is an already sought-after, timeless classic, of which only one has been built. A ship to comfortably travel and a long stay on board. 

The ship can be visited by appointment. Would you like to enjoy a well-earned rest and still make a big trip, but don't want to compromise on your comfort?  Would you like to invite your business relations to sail in a relaxed atmosphere or a nice family ship where you can enjoy a nice anchorage together, then make an appointment for a tour without any obligation.
