This stout boat is well-suited for offshore cruising and racing. It sails well, yet is sought after by live-aboards because of its spacious accommodations for its size. This classic has been well-maintained by its owners and has many cruising years ahead of it.

Broker's Comments

This well-cared-for classic is ruggedly built to handle rough seas in comfort. The accommodations on the 43' are comparable to the 50' version in a shorter, lighter weight package. It is sparse on electronics, but adequately equipped otherwise. Overall, the boat appears to be in good condition with no apparent structural discrepancies and no osmotic blistering. In a recent survey, only a few minor recommendations were made and the surveyor noted that the cosmetics and general maintenance were found to be in high standards for a vessel of this age. This is a good value for a 43' boat with offshore capabilities.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
