It is a rare pleasure and opportunity to represent a vessel which has been completely refit and customized by shipyard owner, upgraded continually, and maintained to a level where the vessel shows like new. Her custom cabinetry interior, custom stainless topsides along with custom stern davit, new canvas and cushions throughout, a new hard bottom Achilles with outboard, make this one of a kind yacht exceptional. Her hull bottom was covered in fiberglass from the boot stripe down, and motors and generator installed new. Must see to appreciate !
