Broker's Comments

PRICE JUST REDUCED!!! This boat is a classic beauty! This boat has the fine lines of the way boats were supposed to be built. She was once a Bahamas resort day-sailer and enjoyed as a cruiser/live-aboard in the Bahamas and the Florida Keys!

She is ready for her new owner with new power (2003) and was lovingly maintained by her current owner who happens to be a bit picky about how she is maintained! Obviously a lot of pride and care went into restoring her full beauty! Come see this one and enjoy a sail today. This is not a "project boat" or a "fixer upper!" This classic lady is ready to dance!
