This was a great Lakes boat for most of its life. Current owner purchased in Michigan in 2014 and began the Great Loop Trip. Health problems caused him to stop in Saint Petersburg and he is no longer able to complete the voyage.

Boat has a full exterior awlgrip paint job, is well equipped with low hour generator, bow thruster, Furuno electronics, good canvas, a nice interior with minimal water staining, a dry bilge, rebuilt transmission, and is overall in very sound condition with noticeably less corrosion than a typical Florida boat. Exterior paint is still very nice.

Vessel has been idle for a few years now, (in her covered slip), and is due for bottom paint and a full servicing.

A very economical cruiser that would be ideal for the Great Loop.
