Available for SaleSECOND STRING IV46' 1992 Post 

The SECOND STRING IV is a 1992 model (and year produced) POST 46 II Convertible / Sportfish. POST YACHTS of May's Landing, NJ first manufactured the "46 SF" in the late 1970's and introduced the improved "46 II" in the late 1980's. Her solid fiberglass "Modified Vee" hull provides an outstanding ride as well as a very durable yacht over the years. She's powered by Detroit Diesel 6V92TA's that are rated at 550 HP at 2300 RPM

Over the years, the SECOND STRING IV has had but two Owners and the yacht has "never been fished". As the present Owners bought her in 1998, the majority of the work has been accomplished on their watch, so to speak. A review of the Listing will certainly show that her maintenance and general product improvement has been a constant process over the years as well.

The SECOND STRING IV is as nice as she reads. For clients who aspire to one of the best-looking & quality-built boats to compare favorably with the yachts produced by the very well-regarded "Jersey Boat Builders", this POST 46 will surely appeal.

26 North Yachts is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Brewer Yacht Sales. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel
