The KZAM one of the hugely popular 55 Ocean SS built, (170; 55 Ocean Yacht SS built).  The 55 Ocean SS dominated the big boat marketplace in the 1980s due to styling, accommodations, and performance with relatively small engines.  Being a 1987 model it is the newer style 55 Ocean SS.  The KZAM has benefitted from 12 years of ownership by a pervious Ocean Yacht owner that had a boating goal; his boat would be reliable and safe.  The KZAM runs great and looks good with its 2yr old complete paint job, (light blue hull & white topsides).  Offered now as the owners “big boat” career is coming to a close. Please call for many more additional photos.
