BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM CANVAS
Why we bought the boat;
We wanted a large boat to travel to the local islands. This boat was previously owned by two older folks who used it for weekend get-a-ways at the local marina. They kept it in great condition. We felt it was a good boat for us because of size, condition and sea worthiness. The boat was produced between 1979 and 1986 by the well know designer, Bob Rioux. Although the boat was not designed to have a cover, we had one custom made and recently had all the stitching redone.
The bottom line it had a lot of room, storage and was very comfortable for us.
What I love about the boat;
It takes us where ever we want to go safely. We have been in the worst storms and never had a problem. We made some enhancements: hard wood floors, indirect lighting aft, cable ready, and radio speakers outside.
We love traveling to various marinas where we have spent past years, sitting on the boat in the evenings and relaxing. For me, it’s a great diving boat. My wife loves to sit and read.
Traveling to the places and marinas where we grew up, Long Island and Shelter Island.
What would buyers like;
Stability, roomy, sea worthy, just plain comfortable.
Also, very easy to handle in tight areas for docking and under power in rough waters.
We have an excellent mechanic maintaining the vessel. It is always in perfect shape.
Why are we selling;
We currently own a few boats and are looking to consolidate to one boat with the features we like best.
