RAFOLY is simple to sail and gives a feeling of speed akin to a performance sailing yacht. However her motoring under power is also excellent ensuring she is capable of long-range passages in all conditions.
Her flybridge, with Jacuzzi® and extensive sunbathing, is outstanding; access to the sea is remarkably easy via a hydraulic pivoting beach platform; and her interior offers four large double cabins. Owner privacy is maximised as the Owners Cabin is accessible by an exclusive private staircase.
