2000 Garlington 61

This 61' Garlington was the third in a series built by the original owner. As a MTU Distributor, he installed a pair of series 90-12V-2000, 1350hp "detuned" engines to ensure dependability and longevity. Very few 61's have this preferred engine package. Additionally, he used his previous building experience to further refine and customize the vessel. The owner, also a prior Garlington owner, has brought the boat back to like-new condition with over $500,000 in upgrades over the past 2 years. She has a very desirable 3 stateroom, 3 full head layout. In addition she has extremely low original hours. She is exceptional in every way!
