Broker Comments

This popular model has been in the same family for 14+ years and has always benefitted from being fully crewed and well maintained by a knowledgeable owner whose main business is commercial shipping. A great riding hull, wider than the competition. She has lots of access room in the engine room to properly maintain equipment, due in part to a lack of fuel tanks as found on a lot of other boats in this size range. Great “toy” storage off the swim platform – she is ready for the next family to enjoy her! A great value.
