Gray Ghost is an updated rwin 52 that is in beautiful condition. She has been very well maintained and upgraded over the years with a list that includes replacing the mast step and reducing the mast height to 63 ft, to make the boat ICW friendly. Down below, the teak joinery work is above average condition throughout. A high gloss, varnished, teak sole adds to the warm feeling below decks and the updated white outboard paneling and new hard headliner brighten the interior and provide for less maintenance. 

Tempered glass salon windows allow clear view around the boat. New rigid headliner in all staterooms with new lighting. 

All air conditioned with newer digital systems - 3 units.

The mizzen mast has been removed and a new rigid framed full aft deck shade awning provides a great aft deck out of the sun.

This is a very comfortable, live-aboard boat for family cruising or for chartering. The boat is very well equipped and ready to go cruising now.
