This Sea Ray has was purchased and placed on the hard to have work completed, the owner has battled through illness and has begun some of the work, but would like to move into a smaller vessel.

The seller has the hull looking well above average with the compound and wax job recently completed.

There are four brand new batteries installed as well.

The seller is continuing the work until the vessel is sold.

The layout is timeless and still well sought after for design and space.

Information On Condition

The listing broker was very impressed with the hull and look of this Sea Ray. Walking around and on the forward deck, it felt very solid, I was not able to feel any soft spots anywhere on the vessel.

The interior is in nice condition, in the process of even being improved with the new carpeting through-out.

Free from any smells, the seller reports both A/C units function properly, the fridge/freezer combo was clean and blowing cold.

The seller states the engines are in running condition and crank right up and sound excellent

The seller prior to splash painted the bottom.

The vessel was on the hard for almost three years, prior to be recently splashed and placed in her slip.
