Van de stadt Legend 34

Miles Better


The Van De Stadt Legend 34 is a sturdy performance cruising yacht, and Miles Better is a real classic. Heavy built and comfortable, she has all the potential for a great family boat for exploring the west coast and beyond. For sale due to bereavement, she was carefully looked after by the previous owner for a number of years, but unfortunately over the past 2 years the boat has been in need of some refurbishment. That said, she comes with a great engine and a good yard trailer.
