Brief history (Beneteau 57)

Pursuader Too was built new in 2004 for an English owner who used her for cruising in the Mediterranean. She succesfully completed the 2007 ARC, coming first in the group of seven Beneteau 57’s that took part.

She was sold in November 2008 to her current Dutch owner who used her for cruising mostly in the Mediterranean with his wife and sailed her back to Holland where she stayed for three years. She then returned back to the Med for further blue water cruising.

The owner carefully maintained Pursuader Too and is well documented.

She is privately owned and VAT paid.
