My Girl is a mechanically sound vessel to cruise in or spend the weekends on the water or at a favorite location. The amount of usable space in My Girl is very surprising for a 38’ vessel. The two cabins are spacious. The deck and upper helm are spacious. You could live on this vessel quite comfortably. The current owners have had this vessel for 20 years since 2003. They are only selling My Girl as they want to explore on land the Northwest USA and beyond. The owner has told me that everything works. He was a mechanical engineer in his career and has done a significant amount of troubleshooting and maintaining issues that arose besides the mechanics who have serviced the vessel.

They have all the invoices from work completed here in Eastern North Carolina.

There is cosmetic work that will be needed to be done at some point in time such as replacing the flybridge enclosure, woodwork, varnishing, etc.
