Broker's comments

Gecko Nero, is the only B42 in this country, she was custom built for a wealthy yachtsman in Norway,  and very lightly used in Norway for one summer and shipped in a custom cradle to Sardinia to be lightly used the next summer.

We sold her to the current owner in the spring of 2014.   This owner has lightly used her in Sag Harbor NY.   She shows "As new" with 250 original hours.  Each winter she has been stored in a heated shed at Dodson's Boat Yard in Stonington CT.
