Broker's Comments

This vessel is unique, in that the last two owners have refurbished, repaired, and/or replaced every component as needed. This spacious sailboat has been brought up to exceptional standards and is ready to go cruising. She is very clean with an attention to detail. The sails are currently being stored in the 3rd cabin, but prior to storage, had been inspected and re-conditioned by a local sail-loft in St. Augustine, FL. Please review the entire detailed listing in order to appreciate the value that this beautiful boat will bring its next owner.
