VESSEL IS LOCATED IN: ST. PETERSBURG, FL
Entering the large salon, your attention is commanded by the beautiful custom Walnut wood interior. The look is very clean and understated with indirect lighting, diffused A/C vents, hideaway latches and hinges. A very classic look.
The L-Shaped leather sofa is to port and across to starboard is a custom concealed rod storage with additional swivel chair seating for two. There is a beautiful burlwood high low table accenting the walnut interior.
Forward, to starboard, is the main U-Shaped galley area featuring a side by side refrigerator/freezer, a microwave convection oven, and abundant storage. Across is additional galley cabinetry, including refrigeration, ice maker and the entertainment center.
Moving forward, down the companionway to port is the captains/guest stateroom featuring over/under berths that are very generous in size with plenty of storage and access to the large head and separate shower stall.
Across, to starboard, you will find the huge master stateroom. It has stunning custom woodwork along with great storage and multiple hanging and storage closet space. The oversize head and separate shower is forward.
Going forward in the companionway, to port is the washer/dryer and across to port is more storage and an electrical sub panel.
All the way forward is a guest stateroom which features 2 large bunks, one large berth to port and another large berth to starboard. This area has fantastic storage and its own full head and separate shower.
Engine room access is through the cockpit cabinets.
Electronics have had a recent upgrade.
In 1999 the owner removed the original MAN diesel engines and replaced them with the Caterpillar 3412 engines to improve the reliability of the vessel. These are mildly tuned 1350 HP, electronically fuel injected engines with full NEMA computer capability.
In 2012 the vessels engine computers were replaced, as such the hour meters were replaced. Currently engine hour meters show 2,250 on port and 1,950 on starboard. It is estimated that both engines have in the range of 5,500 hours.
Exhaust risers new in 2017, aftercoolers serviced in 2018.
This area is beautifully crafted with rich grain matched, bookend, Walnut Woodwork. The wood is a hand rubbed satin finish. The lighting is all perimeter, recessed and flush mounted in the valance boards so the headliner is clean without interruption. Cabinets are all blind fastened and the overall look is very clean and understated. Air conditioning is diffused through indirect vents behind valance boards incorporated into the indirect lighting for a quieting effect, and a clean look.
The entertainment center is port side forward and behind the cabinets.
The galley is up, and forward, in the salon. To starboard the galley is U-Shaped with a side by side refrigerator. All of the cabinet drawers are blind mounted and flush with very generous pull out sides. Forward, there is a fully concealed, double sink and Jenneaire 2 burner rangetop, accessed by a slide-away countertop. The galley faucets have an electric "pop-up" mechanism to allow for flush countertops.
There is an Island countertop, (aft and center with storage), running fore and aft. that completes the U-Shape. Across the walkway is additional cabinets with undercounter industrial ice maker, a freezer/refrigerator, a concealed food processor center that cleverly disappears flush (with an electric pop-up) into the cabinet when not in use. Above this cabinet is the entertainment center.
With all of the appliance concealed beneath opening countertop slides or the pop-ups, (and the cabinets with blind hinges and latches), the galley is clean and uncluttered with lots of free working space. Countertops are a solid surface composite. Storage is abundant.
Boat was commissioned by a very experienced husband and wife team to be the ultimate offshore fishing and cruising machine.
A fine example of one of the finest large tournament Convertibles ever crafted. This is a one owner boat that has been well cared for by a very experienced fishing couple.
With her Caterpillar engines she is a very reliable and fuel efficient offshore boat that is a true joy to operate. Boat has just had her engines serviced, a fresh coat of bottom paint and a complete buff and wax. She is offered in turn key condition. She is owned by a Delaware LLC as the sole asset.
Her pedigree speaks for itself. She was built to the highest standards of her times with incredible attention to weight savings and function.
This is a very rare opportunity to own a legend in the world of sportfishing.
