General Details

Attractive Custom Carolina Express with IPS Drive system allowing excellent range, speed and maneuverability.  Cold-molded hull construction.  Vessel is fully operational and with excellent dockside appeal, but has an unfinished cabin allowing many options for a potential purchaser. Original layout drawings arranged a spacious 2 cabin and 2 head configuration.

Currently there is one head and shower finished and useable. The rough carpentry for the proposed interior is in place.  The asking price on this posting includes completion of the interior which may be started immediately and finished by Spring '14. 

An Applied Concepts design and an outstanding offshore performer, she can cruise at 30 knots burning only 52 gallons/hour or for more economy pull back to 27 knots at only 45 gallons/hour.  With 1000 gallon fuel capacity you have almost 20 hours of running time at 27 knots.

Seller would consider a trade of a 50' to 65' convertible with some cash difference. This is a very attractive boat and a great opportunity for the right buyer. 

Seller ready for offers!  Timing is excellent to make a deal.
