With 300 hrs on new CATs, extended warranty, beautiful interior carpentry, new topside paint, hardtop, riggers, curtains, electronics, Optimus steering and a very long list of other additions and upgrades, Full Circle is definitely worth considering if you are in the market for a boat in this class.
