Broker's Comments

If you know anything about PETERSON designs you know they are designed never to be the last boat to the Anchorage. This bullet proof vessel has been cruising for the last nine years and has proven her sea worthiness in many storms but there is one in particular that the current owners will never forget; with average winds of forty six knots and gusts to 54 knots and 30 to 40 foot seas this sea going vessel provided a safe passage. Combining a great design and adding the far east craftmanship this is one very unique and beautiful boat. With her deep fin keel and low profile design she will provide excellent windward performance and a good turn of speed to get you across the worlds oceans. This vessel is being offered at well below market value to insure a speedy transaction. She has just had all all exterior teak caulked and refinished and the fordecks repainted,She is affordable and a well found vessel,and currently awaits her new owners. If you are seeking a bluewater cruiser or a great liveaboard this one has four cabins and is a must see. All reasonable offers will be considered.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
