Brokers Comment

Rarely do you come across a vessel like TALIANNA that has been maintained and upgraded to these standards. The owners relocated making it impractical to use the vessel any more. This is truly a turn key situation at a fantastic price for a new owner to walk in and have fun from day 1. For the extended family TALIANNA provides ample accommodations for all. As a live aboard this vessel is extremely comfortable. This is a must see first class yacht.
