For sale at $20,000

A great vessel, indeed. Extremely reliable. We are the second owners. The first owner had the boat until 2018. We have just had the boat professionally polished and detailed ($1000.00). Don’t let the age fool you; as you know, they just don’t build them like this, anymore. You can take this boat anywhere! Rock solid!

At great expense ($25,000.00), we have replaced BOTH engines, in the last 36 months. One has 20 hours on it, the other about 30. They were broken in, properly and patiently. We have performed the two oil changes, right on time, of course. Props are in great shape. Everything professionally maintained, year after year. Always spends the winter on the hard, professionally shrink-wrapped.

She comes right up on plane, and cruises at 28 knots, effortlessly. Quiet and pretty darned efficient, too, for a vessel of this size.

Main V-berth sleeps two, comfortably. Aft cabin sleeps two kids or one adult. Mid-cabin berth sleeps two kids or one adult. The mid-cabin dining area is comfortable, seating four, easily. She has a full galley, with a two-burner stove (never, ever used), ice cold fridge with freezer, hot and cold running water. She is wired for cable tv. There is a marine head, with full pump out, but we rarely use it--and only for #1, please! The air conditioning rocks, as does the heater. Ice-cold or toasty warm.

In summary, this is a used, but well-loved boat. There are definitely some blotches on the upholstery and carpeting–that kind of thing--but overall she’s in great shape for her age. The price is not negotiable. We know what we have. Mechanically, she’s practically new. You’re getting the entire boat, stem to stern, for less than what we spent on the engines, alone. In other words, we’ve done all the heavy lifting, and now she’s yours to enjoy.

If you’re local, Western Long Island Sound, you have a slip paid for through October 2022! That’s another $1000 right there.
