1957 Custom Historic Tuna Boat 66Enquire About This Yacht
Meet 'Wilmi'.. she is a Beneteau! Launched in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, Western France in 1957 where Groupe Beneteau remain today. She started life as a tuna boat out of the Ile De Yeu that long ago but has been in this family ownership since 1986 and so began a lifetime of renovations.
She is kept absolutely immaculately and is a pleasure to step aboard. A well known yacht in these parts for over a decade, she is only regretfully for sale.
