Available for SaleBANYAN102' 1980 Palmer Johnson 

BANYAN’s former owner was an experienced yachtsman, he made many significant upgrades to this lovely classic. In 2009 a 14’ extension was added to the hull which provided a cockpit, lazarette storage area, and BBQ. New main C18 CATS were installed Seakeeper gyro stabilizers, the electrical system was revamped, new electronics, audio visual equipment, air conditioning and heating, plumbing, steering, bow and stern thrusters, and an updated anchoring system were fitted. BANYAN has continued to be maintained and upgraded since then. Anyone looking for a quality, pedigree classic CMY would be fortunate to own her.
