This is a very well kept example of Jefferson's Rivanna Series, a modern dual purpose trawler/motoryacht. Featuring the dependable twin 450 HP Cummins Diamond Series diesels, she is a very capable yacht with cruising speeds of up to 18 knots when desired . If you are interested in a more economical cruise, pull the throttles back to 8 knots and enjoy a miserly 4 gallon per hour with ample range for extended passages.
This is a two stateroom galley down layout with a lower helm and beautiful High Gloss Teak Wood interior. She has a wonderful, fully enclosed, aft deck and the added benefit of a cockpit with a transom door. Her Fly-bridge is large and fully protected with all new Bimini and full four sided enclosure.
