This is a  shared central listing with Steve Deans at Luke Brown Yachts


The reputation of the Bill Crealock designed Offshore series of motoryachts has created a well deserved following of loyal owners over decades of serious cruising. CANDIDE has been owned by three fastidious owners, who receive high marks for proper care and maintenance of the vessel.

The replacement of the main engines in 2002, installation of the keel extension, prop pockets, raised bulwarks forward, plus numerous updates in the past years make this listing one to consider…In short, cruising improvements that bring a 1997 well maintained vessel up to the condition of many later model designs available on the market today.
