L’Adagio is a fantastic expedition trawler. She has served as a perfect luxury yacht. No compromises have been made in her production, maintenance or further equipment. She has been equipped to go to the end of the world and back.

In style.

Over the years her already excellent machinery and systems have been improved to ensure comforts, range and safety.

L’Adagio has been to Alaska, USA, Mexico, Central America, The Caribbean, Bahamas, US East coast, Canada. She has seen the Ice-covered fjords of Northern Greenland, she has thoroughly cruised Europe from Scandinavia and the UK along the Atlantic coast through Northern Africa to the Azores and the Canaries. She has been everywhere in the Mediterranean from Spain and Morocco in the west to Greece and Turkey to the east. She has crossed the Atlantic on her own keel twice. She has been over the North Sea and the Bay of Biscay. She has been through canals and locks. And she is equipped for it all.

She is big, safe, comfortable and comes fully serviced in pristine condition with all systems ready to go straight across the Atlantic again.

We recommend her.
