This yacht offers three staterooms in the main cabin plus Crew quarters.  She offers three heads in the main living spaces (two below decks and one "Day Head" on the salon level) plus one head in the crew quarters.


Entering the aft deck from the swim platform via staircase on either side, you come onto the large aft deck entertaining cockpit with built-in aft seating and lots of space for additional deck chairs and tables.

Through the double opening doors, you enter the large salon with wrap around sofa's and opening windows all around.  The HDTV is forward and under the TV/Entertainment area is a hidden fridge, ice maker and lots of storage.

Forward of the salon and on stbd side is the galley with full size kitchen appliances, some of which are new from the re-fit.

Forward of that you will find the Pilothouse with opening doors to either side, lower helm to stbd, large dinette to port, day-head aft of the dinette as well as the interior staircase to the bridge deck.

Up on the bridge you will find a great outdoor galley on port side, large facing seating (2nd dinette) to stbd and a large center console helm aft of the dinette and outdoor galley.  The helm offers full 2nd set of electronics screens, three yacht helm chairs and great visibility.

Aft of the helm is a HUGE space for tenders, jet ski's, kayak's or whatever you want.  Or, put the tender off the swim step and just make this a huge entertaining space!

Back to the pilothouse and down the stairs to the stateroom level, you will find the Full Beam master forward (but remember that the crew quarters are still forward of this accessed from a bow hatch, so full beam is really full beam in this forward master).  The master head offers a small tub/shower, dual sink's, head and bedai.

Aft from the master, you will find another head with separate shower and two "side-by-side" twin staterooms.

Note that while the crew quarters does offer two bunks and another head, the current owner never used the crew quarters (in 30 years), so if you will want to utilize the crew quarters, it will be due for a re-fit.  But if you were to ever want to make this vessel a charter boat, it is ideal as the crew can be completely separate from the main cabin, giving the guests the true feeling of being on their own yacht!

Amazing opportunity!  Over $1M refit just a couple years ago that included BRAND NEW, fully electronic modern Yanmar 900HP main engines and transmissions!!!  These brand new engines literally have 15 hours on them.  The new engines and transmissions alone are worth over $300K not installed!  The refit also included a new/updated bridge design with exterior kitchen, updated cockpit design, brand new Garmin touch screen electronics, New TV7 SAT TV System, all new AV equipment, New Carpet and many interior upgrades.  And this boat isn't one of these newer snap together boats, this thing is a Yacht with the big yacht equipment.  Hydraulic Bow Thruster and windlass, Two Generators (20KW working Gen and 8KW day gen), Back up emergency systems and all heavy duty equipment.


So, why is she being offered so cheap????  Well, there is a story.........  The current owner (who has owned the boat for 30 years) decided it was time for a refit a couple years ago (when all the new equipment when in, including the new engines).  After a year in the yard and over $1.2M invested, he got into a disagreement with the yard and had the boat launched and returned to her slip (Fresh water on Lake Union).  The re-fit was 95% complete anyway, so he figured he would just have someone else wrap up the balance of the work.  With-in a few months of the boat being out of the yard, the owner noticed that the brand new paint job was failing.  At the end of the day, he simply lost interest in the project and is willing to just take the loss and let someone else wrap it up.


His loss is your gain!  With all the big pieces in place, this is an opportunity to get into a seriously nice Yacht at a fraction of the cost.  Use it as your personal boat or turn it into a Charter income producer.  Heck, at this price, you could probably part out all the new equipment and be money ahead!

All the mechanical and electrical is complete.  You can use this boat today AS IS if you want to.  We just took her out for a sea-trial and she ran great.  Both mains ran and shifted flawlessly, generators ran great, hydraulics ran great, etc. etc.


Here is what it needs if you want to finish what was started. 
1.  The paint is failing.  Looks great at a distance of 30 yards, but up close you can see some spots that have faded and lots of cracking at various spots all over the boat.  For a perfect look up close, she would need to be repainted.
2.  The new design was engineered for a bridge hardtop that was never made.  So you will see supports on the bridge for a hardtop, but there is no hardtop.  You can either have a hardtop made OR have a canvas maker design a high end canvas top that would mount right to the existing supports.
3.  There was never a new davit for tend
