Broker's Comments

This lovely Alajuela 33 is such a capable cruiser that she has twice been to Hawaii and back.

Upon first stepping aboard the interior gives the impression of being on a much larger boat. She has a very efficient layout and a practical interior design, and is clearly built with top-notch materials.

This is a great boat for gunkholing or blue water cruising and appears overall in excellent condition. She's a lot of boat for the money.
