A meticulously maintained motoryacht in the Sea of Cortez. This 3-Stateroom, 3-Head yacht has everything you need to cruise and fish Mexico in style and comfort. The twin Caterpillars were rebuilt in 2006 and have only seen less than 1,100 hours since. Lots of room for entertaining, comfortable sleeping, or just lounging around while waiting for the big one to bite.

"Snailin’ Aked" boasts three staterooms and three heads with a comfortable and spacious layout with Walnut interior. Among her many amenities she features a full galley and a fully screen enclosed sundeck. Cruise, fish, or live-aboard! Currently she is maintained in the water with a full-time captain.

Her semi-displacement hull, also called semi-planing by some builders, use hulls that incorporate both rounded sections for increased storage and tankage, and flatter hull sections to partially lift the forward section of the hull out of the water, thereby decreasing drag for increased high cruising speeds.
