Broker Comments

MY BUDDY is possibly the best example of a complete "bow to stern" refurbishment. Within the last 24 months, the yacht has had new Awlgrip paint with custom fighting yellow hull and white super structure. Engines completely rebuilt with only 70 hours SMOH. New interior including cabinetry counter tops and soft goods. The Owner's change of plans has resulted in MY BUDDY being offered reluctantly for sale.
