Court Jester is an immaculate, very fast, safe cruiser, designed by the renowned NZ America’s Cup designer Laurie Davidson.

The present owner is a qualified diesel engineer and has spares for every emergency! The boat is fully setup with every extra for live aboard cruising in safety and comfort – is ready to cruise off shore now.
