Description‘Liveaboard’ version Nauticat 331 with a great cruising specification and first commissioned in 2001. A fantastic evolution of the original and iconic Nauticat 33.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Presented in sail away condition BALTO is a very nice live aboard example of the popular Nauticat 331 motorsailer.
Based on the old Nauticat 33 the design of the 331 has been changed very little during the last 45 years of production. Some tweaks below the waterline have improved boat handling and sailing performance for the better while below decks the finish has been refined to an exceptional standard. Accommodation is provided below decks for a total of 4 crew in comfort with a single large heads forward and the elevated wheelhouse providing panoramic views from the saloon table.
