Broker's Comments

Just prior to the storms that hit the BVI, the vessel was fitted with New Batteries, a brand new generator with 5.4 hours. The air conditioning unit looks very new as do the heads, windlass motor, fridge compressor and watermaker. This vessel has detailed log books that go back many years.
She was in dry storage for the storms so was never flooded. The shaft is currently out as it was leaking when launched.
I feel this vessel would be a great project to turn into a live aboard blue water cruiser. She is older but still has many years of life considering all the new parts.
90% of the stanchions and stainless are perfect. The all round cosmetic apearance is fair. The interior floors look new in areas. I am sure the log books would have all of this detailed.
A new mast would need to be machined. Rigging fixed and sail repairs to the main only. Other sails were stored inside.

These boat details are subject to contract.
