General Details

This is a 1946 United States Navy Admirals Tender. Later the United States Coast Guard used this vessel. Today the boat is used as a live-aboard leisure cruiser and currently docked in West Palm Beach, FL.
She is a beautiful boat and gets tons of attention. All upgrades have been completed in the last two months.
The hull is cold-molded fiberglass over wood and she rides very smooth and very capable. The hull is excellent condition for her age and bottom painted December 2013. Hull was just Awl-grip painted December 2013. New zincs and rudder and shaft stuffing. Alignment completed December 2013.
At a cruising speed of 5 to 7 knots she only burns 1.5 gallons per hour on her single screw, making her very economical. The super-charged 671 Detroit diesel engine runs perfect. The engine and transmission were just aligned by a certified Detroit mechanic. This engine is well known as one of the most reliable engines ever built and will no doubt out-last your lifetime
The saloon was once a crew's quarter with small galley and head. Now, as you can see this is now one large room with all new large head / shower with teak floors and custom marine grade cabinetry. The salon features all new appliances: refrigerator, gas range, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. The head feature a new Jabsco toilet new PVC walls, vanity and glass tiles.
Sleep one in the saloon on new Sunbrella seat cushions and there is a large very nicely finished owners birth capable on the bow capable of sleeping 3 complete with a sink and small fridge.
You will also enjoy having a very large cargo-hold accessible on the back deck. This cargo-hold is approximately 100 square feet!
All birth spaces are air conditioned by a 16,000 BTU Cruise Air Conditioner.
