'Conquistador' is a good, strong well-maintained 13.5m Beneteau Idylle 13.5m marconi sloop offshore cruising yacht. The perfect cruising/liveaboard yacht with all the necessary equipment and gear you will need to make your dream come true.

'Conquistador' was built in 1984 but after her huge makeover she looks a lady of younger years.

In 2012-2014 the refit included new sails, bowthruster, electric windlass, targa cover, 3 x 135 watt solar panels, wind generator, sprayhood, bimini, a spacious cockpit tent, new glass in all windows and hatches. Also all of the interior woodwork was given a fresh coat of varnish, a new floor laid, new ceiling panels fitted and all new covers made for the cushions.

'Conquistador' is of an age when craftsmen knew how to make yachts and didn't rely on computerised machines and button pushing operators. She is of solid construction weighing in at 11 tons and sporting a fin keel which gives her a nice motion when offshore. Her mast is keel stepped, her well maintained ISUZU 62hp marine diesel engine lies underneath the galley sinks and if needed could be easily removed for work etc.

Once beneath decks you will be surprised just how light and airy and voluminous she is - a big plus when contemplating living aboard.

She also hosts a large galley and saloon seating area for entertaining guests or just enjoying a meal for two. The saloon can be converted to give a large double berth should a 3rd be required.

Both cabins have ensuite heads. There is even a small workshop. Storage space is plentiful.

'Conquistador' is VAT paid and can be viewed over the winter 2018/2019 in Cartagena, Spain. The nearest airport is Murcia - cheap flights from the UK and the airport is only a 20 minute drive from the marina.

She is a beauty. We're looking for a solid, tough boat that can well handle mmmmm jaunts close to coastline. Interior may be top shelf only a plus. How tough is she in rough seas. Our boat will not be sitting lonely at a mooring. Need to know how solid she behaves....
