her story: the first owner sailed her primarily in the mediterranean sea. the second owners, lilian and hanspeter took her through the street of gibraltar to west africa and then across the atlantic to the caribbean for approximately 15 years.

we are super grateful for their love, time and effort they invested into maintaining her excellent condition. we keep finding amazing gadgets and are astounded how much thoughts they put into their problem solving. we feel honoured to continue whispers journey and we could not have wished for better pre-owners considering the amounts of guidance, phone calls, emails, leads, tips and tricks they are giving us – so precious and greatly appreciated! thank you very much lilian and hanspeter – we wish you only the very best for your land-based life in zurich.

much love from paradise.

Sabrina
