A nice sun deck trawler that has been well-cared for with updates and maintenance one would expect from a meticulous owner. With two staterooms with ensuite heads, large salon, fully functional galley and plenty of room for a crowd. With beautiful interior teak panels and trim, louvered and grated doors, parquet flooring and matching fabrics the interior shows like a much larger vessel with plenty of room for storing personal items or provisions. Large exterior windows and overhead hatches offer an abundance of both natural light and ventilation.
Since purchasing her, the owner of SWAMP YANKEE has completed the Great Loop in 2017 and have reluctantly decided to move back ashore. This vessel has had many upgrades and has been lovingly maintained. She is arguably the nicest 43 Sundeck motor yacht of this vintage on the market today.
