Broker Comments: Thirty plus years later they do not build them like this anymore and they never will. Mechanical this boat is superbly maintained and all is in good working order. Original gel coat is still in superb condition, as is the interior wooden joinery. Needs some cosmetic attention to teak seal (side deck and fore-deck), and touch up to some of the black paint (corner areas) around flybridge coach roof.
