The boat in the add is "Lost Soul". It was owned by Bob Bitchin the old owner of Latitudes and Attitudes. I don't think the one the OP posted is the same boat. It does look like a Formosa. They are asking 245k for Lost Soul which seems really high to me but who knows.

OP here ...ad reads.... boat is located in the east bay. I saw this boat in an east bay marina...Antioch. I could be wrong, but doesn't matter....just curious about this vessel.

Thanks for the response.

It looks like it would be a great liveaboard from the pics...

BTW, There's an old thread here on CF about these boats. Seems to be a VERY seaworthy vessel.
