WOW! What an amazing opportunity! A solid and sea worthy Nordic 44, now on location in the 5 Star resort Marina on Rebak Island Langkawi! With some of the most stunning cruising grounds, right on you transom step! Rasa Manis is an extremely well maintained, and up-kept example of this Robert Perry designed boat, built in 1981 by Nordic Yachts. She has had 2 previous owners, and some amusing cruising adventures already in her time, and the current owner is ready to move onto a different lifestyle after his 14 years onboard.
Robert Perry himself once said: the Nordic 44 "... Is the most beautiful yacht we have had built to our designs. " and Rasa Manis is proven to be a solid blue water cruising boat, with 2 spacious cabins, and an open and airy saloon and galley area. The pictures in this add were taken on July 2019, and this is exactly how she presents now.
Lovingly maintained, with a refit in New Zealand as she made her passage from Mexico through to Australia and Asia, she is ready for her new owners, and awaiting their arrival patiently. The owner is a motivated seller and I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you in her viewing.
