Broker's Comments

The Aquastar Pacesetter 27 has great sea-keeping qualities making them ideal for coastal and offshore use; and they are also well suited to inland waterway and river use.
The 180hpdiesel engine is ideal for this boat she can cruise along comfortably at 8 -12 knots. The owner estimates the fuel usage at 8 knots is just 2 Gallons per hour; the engine has only completed 930 hours running time.
The accommodation on the boat is on two levels an enclosed wheelhouse with seating, the galley and the helm. Forward of the helm you step down into the forward double cabin the berths can be left as two single or the infill used to make a good sized double. In this forward cabin you have a separate heads and good storage. The cockpit seating will make up into an occasional double berth if required.
Navigation equipment is extensive and includes a Chart Plotter, Radar and Autopilot; see full details above.
