This boat has had only three owners, all in the Pacific Northwest. As the third, I’ve owned this boat since July 1999. All pictures are recent, 2016 or 2017, except where otherwise noted. Much of the work on this boat has been with systems improvements. Work continues daily on the cosmetic finishes below decks, which will serve to increase the sale price as time passes.
