Perfectly suited to those who looking for a comfortable, very easily handled and superbly maintained yacht with minimal draft and maximum space to entertain. There is so much to love about Watakai, she's a lot of boat for under $60,000. Please phone Australiawide Boat sales to arrange a suitable time to inspect. She's located at her berth nearby our office here on Manly Harbour Qld and very much broker recommended.
