General Details

Lowest price American Vagabond 47!

Price Reduced from $120,000 to $80,000

This Boat Must Be Sold !

Owner's plans for extended cruising have been cancelled. The boat is no longer used and she deserves a new owner who can take her sailing again.

Structurally sound, reliable engine, serviceable sails, genset, watermaker all fine.

Cosmetic work needed below: upholstery, teak etc.

 This is a boat with considerable potential as a live aboard blue water cruiser to be had at a favorable price. Your purchase cost and repairs & upgrades could be below the current market value for other 47 Vagabonds.

Everlasting has Bill Garden's classic design in a serious cruising boat fully equipped for comfortable cruising anywhere in the world.  She looks just as good at a dock as out to sea.
