Robusto has been exceptionally well maintained during her current ownership, with no expense spared. Transformed during her refit of 2006-9, she now offers a new owner the chance to enjoy a much newer yacht than she is on paper, and a yacht that is ideal for private or charter use. In this, her first charter season, she has received high praise from industry brokers and as a result has secured 5 weeks of bookings, with no doubt more to come. Her contemporary yet warm interior and great deck spaces are very appealing. She is Cayman Islands commercially registered and MCA LY2 compliant. Completely up to date in terms of maintenance and regulatory requirements, she genuinely is turn key ready for a new owner.
