By The Bay31' Island Packet 31 1988

$ 56,000

Three meticulous owners in this boat's history give you a well maintained, beautiful cruiser. Her hull shines and nothing has been let go. New and newer canvas give her a fresh appearance and she just has that crisp look...even after all these years.

Nothing can take the place of continual maintenance. She shines.
