“SEA LAB” was ordered new and still owned by the original owner.  She has been a fresh water boat since new, with her first three winters in Florida, then full-time in Chicago since; all finishes reflect the life of a Great Lakes kept yacht.  The decks are in immaculate condition, the gel coat is clean and boasts a high sheen, and the metals are as clean as can get.   The V65 was built by Princess as a rough water English Channel express yacht for travel in any sea conditions.   “SEA LAB” was custom designed and built by Viking Sport Cruisers in New Gretna, NJ.  During construction, several custom features, such as the valuable forward windshield vent and enlarged engine room/utility access were added.   Do not miss the opportunity to view this outstanding express yacht!  Owner’s desire to move up makes this the next to sell.
