Broker's Comments

This Lyman 25 Sleeper is as pretty as the day she was delivered new to Seattle in 1964. Owned for almost three decades by a professional marine finisher, this boat has been consistently maintained and mechanically upgraded.

Recently refinished from foredeck to keel to transom, and with a remanufactured 250 hp Chris-Craft engine she's a nearly-new classic.
