SLIM was launched in 2012 and has been impeccably maintained throughout the years with major refits in 2015 and 2019. She is custom fitted to her owner’s requirements for world-cruising and exploring those places that only a yacht has access to. Her composite fiber construction complimented by a fast displacement racing hull design, SLIM handles any conditions and delivers superior sailing performance. SLIM comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests in 3 cabins, each equipped with walk-in shower, AC, sound system and flat screen TV.
