'Kesh' my Wauquiez Gladiateur 33 is for Sale
by owner Matthew Morrison

My 1984 Wauquiez Gladiateur (hull #290) - 'Kesh' - is the sturdy little sister to the Wauquiez Pretorien. She's a very well-built offshore-capable cruiser sleeping up to seven people in two separate cabins. Her Volvo diesel and saildrive have 400 hours since installation.

Other features include Raymarine radar, chartplotter, Icom 504 with AIS, tiller pilot, Stackpack, dodger, bimini and cockpit cushions.

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 in the USVIs enroute for St Martin. We;re selling because we've now decided to move up to a bigger boat.
