Broker's Comments

I do like these Aquabell's, they give you a sense of "Go anywhere capability" the moment you step onboard, you just know that this old girl is going to get you home safely through the worst that Neptune can throw at you. Two big powerful Volvo Penta's give you all the Hp you need and that lovely flared bow will slice through any sea. Plenty of navigation equipment to get you to the fishing grounds, and a good sized aft deck just add to the package.
