If you have been waiting for the right coastal cruiser to come along that won't break the bank, you better give me a call quick. She has 2 Ford Lehman 135hp engines and a Kohler 4 KW generator. With a fuel burn of 4 1/2 gallons per hour at 8 1/2 knots She is very economical to run. She also has 6 golf cart batteries new in 2014. The hot water heater was new in 2012. Fuel filter system is over sized Racor 900. There is also a Splendide washer & vented dryer. There is a lot of good years left in this very desirable Sundeck cruiser. There is a water filtration system and 2 A/C units to keep you nice and comfortable. She is right at home at a secluded anchorage or on the move to the next stop on your journey. She would make a good Loop cruiser with her bridge clearance at 15'6" and draft at 3'6". Give me a call so I can tell you more about your new boat.

Vessel Walk Through

Standing on the very roomy aft sundeck, there is a table and chairs for enjoying a meal alfresco with fantastic views all around. There is also a wet bar on the sundeck. There is a boarding ladder going down to the swim platform where you will find a hot and cold shower and a swim ladder. Back up on the sundeck moving forward and up 3 steps you enter the upper helm station where you will find seating for at least 8. The upper helm is completely covered with a large bimini for lots of shade. Under all the seats you will find lots of storage, including a deck box for storing all your dock lines when your on the move to the next destination.

Moving down the companionway, you step into the main salon. Beside the companionway steps you will find, on the port side, an ice maker. The port side also has an easy chair facing the sofa, that folds out to a queen size bed on the starboard side. Forward of the sofa is the lower helm station and to the port is 2 chairs at the bar that look down on the cook in the galley. The galley is on the port side with large stainless sink, microwave, toaster oven, fridge & freezer, 3 burner propane stove & oven and again lots of storage. Opposite the galley is the forward head with shower. Moving forward again, you find the forward cabin with a double bunk up and single down, hanging locker and vanity.

Back up in the main salon moving aft, you drop down 2 steps to enter the large aft stateroom. You have a walk around queen bed center and 3 hanging lockers that activates a light when the door is opened (very nice) . There is lots and lots of storage. To the port side you enter the private head with a stall shower. This is a very nice and private aft cabin.

Broker Comments

The current owner has owned this boat for 3 years and has had some great times on it. Was preparing for the loop but health is forcing the sale. She is ready for a new owner and some new adventures. It has a great layout, with lots of storage and the sundeck is great for lounging and enjoying the natural surroundings. This boat will make someone a very happy boater. Come and see how she fits!
