Hollyday, a Feeling 39 di, was built by Alliaura Marine in Les Sables d'Olonne, France. This boat is well equipped with a larger than standard engine, a fully battened mainsail and furling genoa, all in addition to an already comprehensive standard specification.  She is the lifting keel version with three large double cabins outside the saloon and a single heads, with a light, airy and spacious saloon. She is for sale at $139,000 so early viewing is highly recommended.

Hollyday has only been based in the United States.  For 10 years she was in fresh water in Lake Champlain. Since she was purchased by her current owner she has been based in Florida.  She made two extended Bahamas trips. When not on a Bahamas trip she has been stored on the hard at the Hinckley yard in Stuart, FL.  Thus she has had less than a year in salt water.

Brokers Comments

This is wonderful boat for cruising Florida, especially the Keys and for continuing on thru the shallow waters of the Bahamas.  It is fully capable of continuing and cruising all the Caribbean. Hollyday is well cared for by a knowledgeable owner. She has been out of the water when not in use.  The limited teak on deck has been re-varnished in 2014.  Bring your groceries and start off on your dream.  Feeling is a high quality French boat, the design is similar to a Southerly.
