Broker's Comments

The Vantare line is well-regarded for its durability and functional, contemporary designs. This 53' pilothouse model is a roomy, comfortable boat that should be considered for extensive cruising, and would make an exceptional live-aboard. Its current owner acquired the boat, completed extensive maintenance and upgrades, and then used the boat very little. It appears to require some minor cosmetic and maintenance work to bring it to very good condition, and with a bit more effort this boat could be restored to top shape. The boat's systems are all functional, and the Caterpillar diesels and Westerbeke generator have very long lives ahead of them!

New price reduction reflects the owner's determination to sell the boat quickly. This is a remarkable value in a 50'+ pilothouse motoryacht!
