BROKER’S COMMENT: This boat was built for an experienced retired fisherman for pleasure and occasional hobby fishing. Her appointments are simple and rugged reflecting the owner’s long experience at sea. She is not quite a yacht and not quite a fishing boat; but she is perfect for diving, fishing, cruising or coastal transport. The owner reports that the boat is powerful, fast and able.
