Broker's Comments


The bank has agreed to accept a short sale offer on this boat which has allowed us to drop the price significantly.

This is NOT a bank repo. The vessel continues to be properly maintained in a dry storage marina and in fact, the seller just paid about $5,000 for a complete tune up including new batteries and risers. This boat is running great and it she is ready to go, especially at this price.

There are many 280 Sundancers on the market. So, what separates this one from the pack?

- New Kohler generator installed in 2007
- New Eisenglass installed in 2007
- Single owner
- Always dry stored
- And of course, Price

Seller has this vessel priced in the lowest range for a quick sale.
