Broker's Comments

The Prospect 900 designed by Van de Stadt is seaworthy family cruiser with a safe deep cockpit and plenty of room, sleeping up to 5 people.
This one had a new Engine in 2004 plus new Stack Pack and Dodgers in 2012. She has a good level of instrumentation that includes a Lowrance Chart Plotter.
