Broker's Comments

What a gorgeous classic! This 1965 Monk designed Command Bridge Sedan Cruiser is an excellent example of this successful model and you realize why upon entering the double french door companionway into the outstanding Salon that feels more like a suite than a yacht. Forward of the Salon the Wheelhouse with an outstanding Helm and Navigation Station with a very nice Settee with excellent visibility.
The two Staterooms and larger of two Heads are below and very comfortable with plenty of storage.

This classic cruiser features one of my favorite layouts and the construction and attention to detail is outstanding. She would make an excellent live aboard.

Book a viewing today and see why these vessels are so popular with the serious classic cruiser owners who demand the best built boats with the most comfort.
