Sibylle and Markus purchased the Comet 460 in November 2004 from the former German owner (second owner) in Pula in Croatia. After initial take-over work and some required replacement of part of the instruments, we began sailing with her in Spring 2005. During winter 2009/2010 we have merged the two front double cabins into a large owners cabin offering a wide double bed and a couch on the port side as shown in the middle of the right illustration abobe.
