'Kesh', a Wauquiez Gladiateur 33 for Sale

by Matthew
(Florida )



My 1984 Wauquiez Gladiateur - 'Kesh' - is the sturdy little sister to the Wauquiez Pretorien. She's a very well-built offshore capable cruiser with new engine and sails. Her Volvo diesel and saildrive have less than 200 hours since installation. Other features include Raymarine radar, chartplotter, Icom 504 with AIS, tiller pilot, Stackpack, dodger, bimini, cockpit cushions, spinnaker and spinnaker pole.

These boats have solid glass hulls with all bulkheads tabbed to the hull. This particular version is one of the better ones out there. 'Kesh' is currently located in Indiantown Florida waiting for a new owner. I’m selling because my job has me traveling and I don’t have time to enjoy the boat - sadly, I’ve only managed to get out once in the last year, so feel it’s time to let a new owner enjoy this boat. Write with any questions.
