Priced to sell!


Vessel Walkthrough
Entrance to the yacht is easy when from a floating dock via the wide hydraulic swim platform and a hinged transom door.  From the side decks there are two molded steps down to the Cockpit.   Entrance into the Salon is via a curved Trend stainless steel door opening on the starboard side.  Immediately to port is an L shaped settee with a cherry table.  To starboard is a cherry cabinet that houses a 32" popup TV flanked by two occasional chairs.  Next forward is the open Galley with cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, Corian countertops and a wood sole.   Up three steps to starboard is the Companionway to the Pilothouse.  A large wrap around helm console offers excellent visibility and plenty of seating in an L shaped settee aft and to port.  Interior access to the Flybridge is aft via carpeted steps.  Continuing forward on the starboard side is the Accommodation Companionway and side deck sliding access door.    At the bottom of the steps and aft is the Master Cabin with a
