2005 Faeton 780 Moraga

Burnham-on-Crouch, United Kingdom


The Faeton 780 Moraga is a high quality performance-orientated sportsfisher, also suitable for cruising and overnight stays. They offer a rare combination of improved performance and handling over other sportsfishers like the Antares and Merry Fisher range thanks to a deep-V hull with semi-tunneled propeller, but are still shaft drive for reliability and reduced maintenance costs when compared to Trophy, Karnic, Quicksilver and other sterndrive powered alternatives. 'Reel Fun' is presented in excellent condition throughout and has an impressive inventory including 240hp Yanmar diesel engine, upgraded Raymarine navigation equipment including radar and fishfinder, recent premium quality full cockpit enclosure, bow thruster, electric anchor windlass and more!
