Broker's Comments

Reduced by $15,500.00! Owner says sell now!
Amazing space on this 46' Gaff Rigged Schooner. The perfect liveaboard with large cabins, Saloon, and Galley. The Head is the biggest I have seen. Dry Docked, refit, Surveyed, and completely repainted in 2003.The hull could use an additional coat of paint soon, but that is all that is suggested to complete the perfect 5 sail vintage Schooner. This one is worth seeing!
