SCOTT FREE V, 1997/98 model, and a third owner vessel, is an elegantly styled 55 pilothouse motoryacht, with a semi-displacement hull that has proven to be easily driven as well as extremely comfortable and sea-kindly.  The shape of the entry at the bow rolls the water away from the hull and its height and flare keep heavy seas off the deck at all speeds. 

SCOTT FREE V features twin generators, watermaker, CAT engines, bow thruster, and a 12' dinghy with davit.


In late November 2013 due to port engine starter motor fire, extensive work was performed and completed (March 2014) throughout the engine room.  The CAT engines were serviced and removed in order to complete the necessary work.  Most major components were repaired or replaced as necessary.  Service records will be available upon request.

A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated.
