1997 42 Silverton 402 Motoryacht

For Petes Sake is very well equipped with economical Cat diesel engines, diesel generator, 3 zone A/C, and full electronics.  With two staterooms, two en-suite heads, full galley, large dinette, bright salon, and large aft sun deck, this is as good as it gets in a 42 motor yacht.

Recent updates include new exhausts and turbo, new HDTV, new DVD, new stereo, new radar, new batteries, new toilet, and more.  During a recent haul-out for insurance survey, fresh bottom paint, props reconditioned, topsides polished, and other dry dock maintenance was performed, so For Petes Sake is turn-key ready for winter cruising in Florida, the Bahamas, and beyond.
