1.The photos of the boat show
a nice looking boat
, in what appears to be very good condition. As with any boat, a survey
is a good idea. Caveat Emptor (any boat). Condition is critical for older boats, and looking at this boat's list of updated gear
and the rebuild
components is good to see.
2. I like what I see in the photos. Especially the interior
finish and design. The use of wood
looks very nice. I like the galley
. This boat suits my personal taste.
3. This boat has three cabins, with two private cabins aft.
4. I like a chart table. It has one.
5. One feature that makes this less preferable for some buyers is the 7 foot draft
. That can pose some limitations on cruising parts
of the Florida
of the Bahamas
and may lead to more care needed in the ICW
. But, other CF members have cruised those areas and the Caribbean
and Pacific and Med
using boats with 7 foot draft
, and it is not a problem on the Pacific or those areas.
