Listing :


IDYLLE 13.50 polyester sailboat built in 1986 by the BENETEAU shipyard to plans by architect German Frers. The hull is in polyester resin with laminated counter mould, and the deck is made of balsa sandwich. The bulkheads are glued and laminated to the counter-mold and deck. The result is a solid, rigid whole.
The yacht arrived in French Polynesia in 1991 and has been sailing in its waters ever since.
The boat has passed through the hands of five owners.
