FRESH WATER, ONE OWNER BOAT
The Packet Craft Express was inspired by the handsome and capable surf rescue craft and pilot boats found along coastlines throughout the world. The Packet Craft Express delivers a distinctive combination of classic beauty, luxurious comfort, exemplary attention to safety and convenience, and design and construction equal to the demands of open water service.
John Henry is a very nice example of this classic yacht, with low hours and excellent maintenance. The boat has been lightly used, spent its winters in indoor heated storage, and is ready for new adventures.
