This is a lot of bang for the buck- a true modern classic that is priced to sell. This boat has been well-loved by her current owner and she has been sailed locally regularly and cruised to the Bahamas numerous times for months at a time. She sports a recently sprayed, beautiful Awl-grip hull paint job and a new bottom (blasted, faired, and barrier-coated in 2018). This is a solid boat that has logged many miles offshore as well as enjoyed harbors and bays. With a trusty 40hp Westerbeke diesel, well-mannered and powerful Raymarine below-decks mounted linear drive autopilot with dedicated, beefy, bronze arm at rudder post/quadrant, and a nice array of sails including a 130 Genoa, 110 headsail, and full-battened main, this boat is equipped for voyaging. Belowdecks comfort is afforded via a recently installed 16000 btu reverse cycle heat/AC and an upgraded Force Ten 3-burner stove/oven with which any true cook onboard will be pleased. Provision and head out for adventure now!

**(4) new house bank batteries and new starting battery (2018).
