Broker's Comments

The Geiger 42 is a longterm live-aboard vessel with more recent upgrades including engine, and large inventory of cruising equipment.
The electrics have recent been full overhauled and upgraded. The tender is also a recent addition to the inventory.
The boat is ideal for single handed long distance cruising.
The deck however does need a repaint.
