"Just in Time" was supplied new by us to her present owners in the spring of 2015. Previously her owners have had Jeanneau sailing yachts and they have decided to return to sail so we have been instructed to market her. This Velasco 43F has had very little use and represents great value for money given her replacement cost. The specification of this Velasco 43F includes the novel "Prestolift" tender handling system from Sweden.
