Broker's Comments

"Solid" is one word that describes this work boat to a tee. Recently the subject of a complete overhaul and now looking for a new owner to put her to some serious work.
The cockpit is enormous and lends itself to all sorts of heavy duty uses.
She is very well equipped with electronics and is more than capable of getting to, and more to the point, getting back from any situation.

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