PARTICULARS ARE BELIEVED TO BE CORRECT BUT ARE NOT WARRANTED. > Broker's Comment: This is a one owner boat that is offered as an estate sale. The hull number indicates a construction date of 8/2008, but the boat was not sold by the dealer until 2010. The late owner had her launched each July in time for a month-long visit to his New Brunswick home. She made one cruise along the coast of Maine, otherwise she was used only for day-sailing about 6 times per season. This explains both the light inventory and the reportedly low engine hours. The owner always had a captain aboard who has maintained her. He is available to answer questions.
