Additional Salesperson Comments
The 55 Californian is considered by many to be the king of quality cruisers. Brer Boat has had many recent upgrades and service procedures that set this listing apart.  Optional 6 cylinder Detroit Diesels 6-71 TIB’s with Airseps added. Californian fuel and waste tanks sat against the hull and lasted about 20 years. Brer Boat tanks were recently pressure tested and/or replaced. [2011] In this economy cruisers often sit with full fuel tanks for long periods. Brer Boat’s fuel was recently filtered and polished. [2011] Bluewater Yacht Yard recently applied a new epoxy barrier coat and multi-season anti-fouling paint to the bottom and running gear.  [2011] Consider the following: Brer Boat has a long list of quality upgrades. The owner took Detroit’s Customer/Mechanic course Operator’s & Installation Manuals; prior marine surveys & most major invoices on board for your review. Our yard continues to prepare Brer Boat for sale at the owner’s direction Owner has many boxes of spares which will be placed aboard at survey.
