Owners Remarks

This yacht is a Great Loop veteran and is ready to cruise immediately.  The current Owner has just spent $50,000 plus in upgrades and maintenance.

Great boat for extended travel, 5 weeks exploring the Bahamas without refueling. Sweet spot 10 knots at 9 gallons per hour, 4 fuel tanks total almost 1000 gallons

Family is downsizing, Children have now married and moved away, Parents want to continue cruising the US intercoastal way and great lakes, looking for smaller M/Y
