Available for SaleAve Maria50' 2001 Post 

This 2001 Post 50 Convertible is in outstanding condition and has been well-maintained and continuously updated by its knowledgeable owner. Ave Maria has the highly desirable CAT 3406 diesels with low hours. It features Sea Mist Green hullsides and the entire vessel was repainted in 2011 and has an impressive shine. The new aftercoolers are only 2 years old and the owner has added a 27k BTU bridge air conditioner along with a bow thruster. The four-sided bridge enclosure is only about 3 years old and completely clear and can be easily opened if the air conditioning is not desired.

Triple spreader Rupp outriggers and the very large cockpit with transom door make this model an ideal cruising or fishing platform. There is a low-profile Marquipt 1000# hydraulic davit for those wanting to add a tender on the bow. Newer triple Garmin MFD screens on the bridge and 72-mile radar with 6 ft open array.

The interior of the 50 Post is beautifully laid out and Ave Marie has the beautiful gloss teak woodwork with Amtico flooring throughout the vessel. The 3 stateroom/2 head layout with washer and dryer is ideal for cruising with friends.

* Dedicated Bridge Air Conditioning 27k BTU (2015)
