As for the layout,

Enter from the large swim platform through the transom door, and you are greeted by large sliding doors to the cabin, and twin molded stairways to the flybridge.

Access to the flush foredeck is straight through the flybridge. The wraparound seating on the flybridge provides plenty of seating for sunset viewing with cocktails. The large bimini top protects the bridge from the weather.

The large cockpit has room for many anglers if fishing is your pleasure, or dining alfresco if you prefer.

Through the double sliding doors is the large salon. To starboard is a sofa, and forward of that is the residential sized refrigerator-freezer. On the port side is a bar with two stools, and forward of that is the spacious galley.

Forward through the companionway to port is the guest cabin. To starboard is the head. Foward is the master cabin with large island berth and head. Port side across from the head is another berth & sitting room.

There are two state rooms. One master & the guest. One head. Nice Galley,& sitting areas.

Potentially An Excellent Liveaboard.

Information On Condition

We had the boat hauled out the other day for a survey recently & we found other items that were not previously known.

We found that when we sounded the hull, the sound was different on the Starboard front hull side in a spot. I took pictures & posted them on the listing. You can see next to the front Starboard strap when in the travel lift where there is some crazing. Shows on the upper part of the bottom paint. We were not able to see inside the hull.

Also, we found the generator was putting out only 30 volts according to the meter on the AC panel.

We found that the AC outlets were not working in the salon on AC power or Generator power. This issue may be why the bridge electonics are not working as well. Maybe it is a grounding issue. Nothing really powered up in the salon except the lights & AC panel. The sureveyor suggested that generator may not be grounded. No mechanic or electrician inspected the boat.

We found that since the boat was partially sunk, the sub floor just above hull in the floor comparments are dry & rotted away. The floor in the salon is good, just not the bottom of the cabinets.

Seller thinks the transmission cooler pump needs to be changed on the port engine. Oil is leaking out of the breather filter. It is smoking from there too. Smoke also comes out of the dip stick when pulled. This is on the port engine.

Things we knew already are that the trim tabs are not working, Electronics on the bridge are not working. One Cabinet on the transom, the hinge is broken off.

Boat could use a wax & compound, Bottom paint was chipping off in a couple of places.

The Midship AC needs to be repaired or replaced.

New fuel filter on the generator.

Most of the electronics are original and may need to be replaced.

No depth finder working.

Some New gauges.

Engines, Generator, & Tansmission oil all changed 2018

Cockpit Drains all cleaned. Deck was pulled to do so.

Salon Ac, Still not working. Needs a capacitor & a thermostat.

Fwd Ac does cool the boat down.

New Fwd ac pump needs to be secured, but is new.

One Racor Filter needs to be Secured.

Seller had lots of the old wood sub floor taken out. The genertator & the water heater are sitting on the last peice. Seems secure.

Tim tabs need to be fixed, but it runs well wit out them.

This boat had an insurance claim & was totaled.

This seller bought it from the previuous owner & found that there was a small leak in the transom through loose screws in on the dive platform.

So, seller Fixed leak in the back of the dive platform.

Both starters were replaced.

Main things are to secure the racor, ac pump, & raw water pump. Repair trim tabs, Get part for ac & get new thermostat. Bimini needs a connection repaired on the fwd, starboard side, no depth finder working. Helm can be cleaned up, loran still there. One tach seems off, but new gages. Cabinet on transome needs now starboard cabinet door. Cracked. Carpet could be cleaned. Tint the windows. Vhf antena might be busted, Needs wax & compounding, Bottom is good, just done. Hot water system at the sink has never been tested.

Seller had new batteries installed & had a new battery box built, The run solinoid on the generator just replaced, new ac pump for the #2 ac & new thermostat. Boat stays pretty cool with one ac. Gel coat is in decent shape.

Engine room Degreased. Engines paint touched up. New Battery Box & painted. Run Solinoid just replaced on Gen Set.
