BROKER'S COMMENT: This boat represents a labour of love that was cut-short due to the recent untimely death of her knowledgeable (ex navy) owner. He had plans for high latitude cruising and he equipped the boat with the best gear for the purpose. The owner ordered the hull, deck, engine, rudder and steering gear in 1993. He then spent the next 20 years preparing for a dream cruise which he was never able to undertake. Murray Yachts built 25 of these boats and they have successfully cruised all over the world. They commissioned the design from E.S. Brewer when he practiced in Maine. We believe that she represents a rare opportunity to purchase a serious, virtually unused, off-shore cruising yacht at a small fraction of her replacement cost.
