Sandalwood is one of the finest GB Europas Oxford Yacht Agency had imported and sold and serviced. She has excellent and preferred Cummins 6BT Diesel Engines, Aqua Drives, and Northern lights generator. A custom battery system was installed by Oxford Yacht Agency in 2001 and kept up to date with the latest Xantrec Inverter System.
Sandalwood's layout is the preferred design with Island bed fwd, guest stateroom for a couple and a child, desk or 3 children, Helm seat, entertainment cabinet and spaces for chairs.
Aft is the large salon settee and opposite the entertainment center which opens up to the "aft porch" style. A staircase leads to the flybridge. The dinghy is easily launched, the engine is very recent as are all the electronics. This boat is ready to go! The most sophisticated cruiser will appreciate what Sandalwood has to offer.
