This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!!

Wonderful liveaboard boat for couple or family, ready for your cruising adventures. Never chartered, she is well equipped and maintained, and set up for extended live aboard cruising and extended living "on the hook", with water maker, solar panels, generator and 1700 amp hours of batteries.

At 40 feet long and 25 feet wide, she offers lots of space for comfort and entertaining, as well as great stability and safety at anchor or under sail. Her shallow 3ft 6in draft offers increased options for safe anchoring away from crowds and wider access to secluded spots - an ideal Bahamas boat!

The large galley-up saloon and the double sliding doors between the saloon and cockpit offer easy conversation with family and guests during meal times and entertaining. The well laid out galley offers lots of cupboards and counter space with a large freezer and refrigerator and lots of ventilation.

The dining area adjacent has a fold open wood table to seat 6+ comfortably for meals, games or watching the 40 inch HD TV. The roomy cockpit is safe, comfortable and airy for relaxing and entertaining with custom all round sunbrella cushions and a custom fiberglass hardtop for shade, topped with solar panels. The helm offers state of the art electronics and great visibility for sailing or docking.

Two queen cabins forward, and two double cabins aft offer lots of room to move around, with hanging cupboards and shelving. The large Bomar hatches above the beds offer lots of breeze and an opportunity to view the stars at night. A spacious head with sink, shower, cupboards, and electric toilets sits between the forward and aft cabins in each hull.

Our 10 foot AB dinghy equipped with a new 20 HP Suzuki outboard takes you wherever you want to go.

2 Volvo Penta 2030D engines with saildrive and 3 blade bronze folding props provides her engine power. Her sail compliment includes a large raked UK mainsail, a Genoa, a storm jib and a spinnaker.

Our navigation electronics include Raymarines EV-2000 Linear autopilot system, I60 depth, sound and wind instruments, Garmin Dome radar, 1 -12 inch and 1 - 7 inch Garmin chart plotters with US East coast and Bahamas maps, , a Standard Horizon Matrix VHF with AIS and a fusion sound system integrated in a network.

Additional equipment to enhance the liveaboard experience includes a Pur 160 12 volt water maker, Phasor Kubota 8kw generator, 6 solar panels for 1230 watts with twin MPPT controllers and 6 Rollls Surrette batteries for 1700 amp hours.

Fully equipped and ready to sail and liveaboard now! She's been our comfortable home for the last 18 years. But it's time for us to pass this wonderful opportunity to new owners. She is now on the hard for Hurricane Season at Harbortown Marina in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Appraised in May 2018 at $165,000.
