Broker's Comments

WOW! Price Reduced to $7000.00!!!!

The owner of this boat has lots of fond memories with this boat and is ready to move on to other aspects of his life. This sweet lady Watkins 25, needs a new playmate!

Loaded with electronics and a comfortable cabin, she is ready for a sail today. A Port Runner foldable bike is even included in her huge inventory of goodies. Her slip is paid up through December of 2008! Talk about going "Dutch" she practically pays her own way!

Come see her and fall in love! She is ready to provide more fond memories to her new owner!
