"Tide Chase" is a superb example of a very well built boat. With considerable, ongoing maintenance by her owner she appears to be in excellent condition throughout. She features huge amounts of accommodation with lots of cabins for your family and guests. Viewings on this lovely boat are highly recommended.

Anti-fouled & serviced ready for the 2015 season.
We have owned "Tide Chase" for 10 years and have done serious amounts of work to improve and update her systems including;

- Professional extension of the bathing platform built as part of the hull under supervision of a surveyor.
- Addition of Vetus stabilisers
- Updating of radar and satellite TV systems
- Comprehensive engine and mechanical systems maintenance
- Addition of hydraulic stern and bow thrusters (Vetus 2-speed)

We have cruised her around Europe with ease and only selling her as the family have grown up and moved out, so a large boat is no longer necessary. Easily handled by 2 crew.
