55′ Cruiser Stern Wide Beam ‘Lily Rose’ UNDER OFFER

‘Lily Rose’ is a 55′ cruiser stern wide beam built by Floating Homes in 2005 as a sailaway and professionally fitted out under the direction of the original owner. With a reverse layout, good use of space and plenty of storage, she has recently undergone a complete professional repaint in an under cover workshop and a new owner is now sought for this attractive and practical vessel. Having had two owners from new, ‘Lily Rose’ is offered for sale as the current owner no longer has need of her. A mooring is also available, subject to the marina operator’s usual terms and conditions.
A 6 month mechanical warranty provided by Boats and Yachts Warranty is available with this vessel and a hull survey was undertaken in 2018.
