CURRENT OWNER SELLING DUE TO HEALTH CONDITIONS

WAS A WEST COAST BOAT – SEATTLE – TRUCKED TO VIRGINIA BY CURRENT OWNER 10 YEARS AGO AND CONSTANTLY IMPROVED AND UPGRADED BY THE CURRENT OWNER
WHEN THE BOAT WAS SURVEYED IN SEATTLE APRIL, 2012 THE SURVEYOR WROTE AND I WILL QUOTE ‘THE OWNER HAS TAKEN EXCEPTIONAL CARE OF THIS VESSEL. HE HAS DEVOTED TIME AND ENERGY APPLYING PROPER YACHT STANDARDS’.

THE SAME GOES FOR THE CURRENT OWNER.

– MEANWHILE SHE STEERS FINE AS IS – THE REASON THE HYDRAULIC LINES HAVE NOT BEEN INSTALED IS BECAUSE THE RUDDER HAS TO BE LIFTED OUT WHEN THE BOAT IS IN THE TRAVEL LIFT AND THE TRAVEL LIFT AT THE CURRENT MARINA DOES NOT HAVE THE NECESSARY HEIGHT
