Broker's Comments

There are very few pre-owned vessels on the market that can honestly claim "like new condition". This is one of them. For the past five years it has been stored inside a completely enclosed boat house. The radar arch was customized to drop down to clear the door and the bow pulpit / anchor pulpit was hinged to reduce LOA to fit within the boat house. The radar arch has electric winches to raise and lower .

All deck surfaces are clean and the interior is remarkably beautiful and shows very little wear.

You must see this vessel to believe its wonderful condition. However - you will need to take your shoes off!

The Everett, Washington boat house is available for sale.
