Broker's Comments

The 30 Watkins is a handsome boat and has the equipment needed for a day or a month.The owner states it is an easy boat to sail and will help teach the new owners upon request. The vessel has been maintained, however there is a good chance the bottom needs to be cleaned and painted for the summer use. The yanmar diesel has appox. 350 hours of operation and starts fine and runs smooth. The vessel for it's age has seen good ownership and has been looked after.Windows have been resealed and the cockpit deck has been redone. The owner is leaving for a extended RV vacation and would like to have settled on the boat before he leaves. All respectful offers will be looked at. There is the possibility of a hard bottomed dingy and motor that could be purchased separately at a huge discount to what was paid. There is also a trailer with this dingy.

Call Don Murphy@ 941-320-4644 to view this vessel. This vessel could be shipped to were ever the new owner may live.
