Bronson 50 ‘Gaudy’

“The way it navigates under awful weather conditions, the layout, it offers a lot of storage space, the space you have in the engine room, everything is easy to reach making daily maintenance a simple task. Docking the boat is quite easy, you can do it alone.”

Owners of the Steeler 52 S ‘Blue Ocean’
