$ 975,000

"Salish Sea"

Built in the Pacific Northwest

The Salish Sea IS48 is built to high exacting standards by Sea Marine of Port Townsend, WA using state of the art technology. Sea Marine boatyard offers old world craftsmanship blended with modern technology to create a performance pleasure yacht, with the New England downeast lobster boat styling and a very open and comfortable interior with 3-staterooms and two heads with stall showers.

This one owner yacht has been updated throughout years to keep the vessels systems current and ready to go cruising.  

The Salish Sea is currently out of the water while the owners have a new bridge enclosure made and do some end of the season maintenance. This is a great time to view the vessel out of the water.
