Are You Looking For A Great Shallow Draft Cruising Boat For Little Money?

With a designed minimum draft of only 4'3', "Floater" is an ideal boat for someone looking for an excellent boat to cruise the shallow waters of Florida and the Bahamas, but also wants to explore the lower Caribbean. She was kept in fresh water until 2000 and her owner has continually updated her.  This is an exceptional value and worthy of your inspection and consideration

Ted Irwin is one of America's best designers and builders of performance cruising yachts. He is noted for combining outstanding accommodations and comfort with exhilerating performance. The Citation 39 follows in this heritage.

If you have a tight budget and need a roomy boat, I encourage you to take a serious look at this Irwin 39.The recent price reduction below $30,000 make FLOATER an even greater value!
