Project: For Sale Puffin nr1

We are very pleased to announce that we are selling the first Puffin ever built. This unique yacht is designed by the Dutch yacht designer Olivier van Meer and built in the Netherlands. Over the years she was maintained beautiful and has only had 2 owners. The last owner made some changes on its design by giving it a bit more cockpit space. The yacht is always stored it inside and is in mint condition. It actually just got a refit.

If you are looking for a definite future classic, you have to come and have a look at this stunning yacht. The yacht will be at our For Sail  sales marina in Port Zelande beginning of April. If you want to be the first to have a look? Make an appointment through sending an email to or call in our office at +31(0)85-0060194
