WOW what a pristine and  very well kept, updated top of the line Wellcraft Portofino. Here is just a beautiful example of the Portofino express motor yacht. She is just absolutly stunning with her 14'6" beam. Plenty of room for entertaining with family and friends. Her stylish design deserves her a timeless class of her own.

She is powered by twin fresh water cooled Mercruiser 7.4 liter 454's inboard direct drives with dripless shafts, a 7.5KW Kohler Genset and dual A/C and heat for her state room, large kitchen and salon. The head and standup walk-in stall shower is located to port mid-ship with access from the salon as well as private access from the forward master stateroom with center island berth, plenty of storage space, hanging storage locker and vanity with sink, separate climate control unit and entertainment center. She has many overhead hatches and skylights which really set her cabin interior design off with generous lighting. Both direct and indirect accent lighting combined with the four port lights and two skylights and hatches in her salon alone.

You've really got to see her as the pictures just don’t do this yacht justice. This vessel was very tastefully designed, well kept and updated to fit her timeless and tasteful style. She has been kept in a covered slip on a fresh water lake in Texas and belongs to a boating enthusiast and former Wellcraft dealer. He refers to her as the "Mother Ship" and is one of the timeless prizes of his private collection. She is available by appointment for viewing and sea trail and the owner will entertain all reasonable offers. Don't miss this one she is lake ready with coast guard pack on board, a turn key boat!
