Brokers Comments
EXODUS is a solid built boat that shows lots of character. The aft salon is unique to this specific boat. The cherry wood throughout the interior along with the teak planked sole are in excellent condition as is all the upholstrey. One of the most notorious owners that sailed a Sunward hull was Walter Cronkite. Oct 2008 survey valued EXODUS at over $200K and was rated at Above Average Condition. She spent the past several years in St. John and is now in Melbourne, Florida for showings. She's a Turn Key boat ready for the most discriminating blue water sailor.
