This boat is owned by a seasonal boater. She is cruised and lived aboard during the non-hurricane season and stored high and dry with hurricane straps during the summer.

Boat has always run very well for the seller and no major service has ever been needed. There are some upgrades he has done in the 3 years he has owned the boat that are noted in this ad. The boat is solid under foot, there are no leaks and the interior and engine room are in above average condition for this year and make of boat. The exterior does need some sprucing up as she has been sitting on the hard for over half a year.

All in all if you are looking for a budget boat that can use a little work but needs nothing major. This should suit your needs.
