Having been with the present owners since new "Island Roamer" lives up to her name. This vessel has spent over 20 years in the Bahama's exploring the different Islands there. After many more recent Intracoastal trips, "Island Roamer" has been at home for the last few years, the vessel's owners are reluctantly ready to sell.

"Island Roamer" is a three stateroom configuration that would make a great live aboard.

The original 120 hp. Ford Lehman has been replaced some years ago by the present 135 hp. Ford Super Lehman. This gives the vessel an incredible range of about 1500 (or better) nautical miles to empty.

The vessel is equipped with a 10 KW cruise generator that runs off the main engine, as well as a 11 KW Westerbeke diesel genset. The vessel also has had the fuel tanks replaced along with the teak decks.
