Shell Horizons is a Post 50' 50 Convertible currently listed for sale on the market. While this boat is not currently listed with United Yacht Sales, our team is happy to work on your behalf in the research and potential sale of the vessel. Our commitment to our clients is to find the best yacht available that fits the their needs, no matter where its listed. United is a professional yacht brokerage firm that has experience listing and selling all types of Convertible Boats and similar boats.

This 1996 50' Post has been meticulously cared for by her experienced owner and has never been fished. With low original hours on her well-maintained MAN engines and significant upgrades and updates made in 2017 (over $40,000 spent) this yacht is turnkey ready for her new owners. The 50' Post was one of the most successful models ever for the company and was in production from 1989 through 2009, an unparalleled model run with over 100 50's delivered over that timeframe. "Shell Horizons" offers a spacious 3-stateroom interior and features the fit and finish that Post was known for, particularly in her cabinetry and joinery. The 50' provides a comfortable ride with efficient operation thanks to her solid glass bottom, wide beam, and low-deadrise modified-V hull.
