Corto Maltese is Maltese flagged, Rina classed, and Vat paid and comes with the option a berth in the beautiful port of Mandelieu -la napoule where she is available to view at short notice.

This stunning yacht is entirely reconstructed, an enormous project undertaken with loving commitment and great expense, completed as new and issued a new official number in 2006. Previously a Charter yacht, she was transformed from a ketch to become a single masted sloop with a new keel configuration and computer aided operating systems, and every nut, bolt and item of furniture has been renewed, making her an exceptional and historic yacht evolved to modern standards.

She has benefitted from an excellent and meticulous captain who has remained with the yacht since 2013 and kept her in absolute pristine condition.

No expense has been spared in her upkeep and she is well worth the visit to see first-hand her exceptional quality.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or require more information for a prospective client.
