NEW PRICE $138,000

November 2019 owners survey available on request. 

Price reduced and seller will entertain a smaller J Boat - J105, J80 or J 70 in trade. CIELO is a cruise/race version shoal draft 511, with carbon mast, and cruise equipped that has had only 2 owners since new. The current owner purchased CIELO in May of 2012 and was on Lake Norman NC until August of 2017. CIELO was then trucked to Deltaville, VA to start the cruise that took it to the Bahamas and then back to the Chesapeake via the intercoastal waterway from West Palm Beach to Annapolis. CIELO has extensive upgrades and is great condition.  

Cielo is on the hard in Annapolis, WINTERIZED and ready to show.
