OWNER TOOK POSSESSION OF NEW BOAT
ALL OFFERS CONSIDERED ON THIS STUNNING BEAUTY!!
The Jefferson 5300 International is a well-built sleek cockpit cruiser with beautiful finishes, built in Taiwan from 1998-2001. The Jefferson 5300 International was not a production yacht, so there were only a few built; CaroLinn is an outstanding example of this luxury level yacht, as she was originally built to be a yacht show model. One look at CaroLinn and you will be impressed with her functional layout, her updated designer décor with light tiger maple and burl wood cabinetry, her upgrades, and how well she has been maintained.
CaroLinn was kept in a covered, fresh water slip until her third owners departed from Chattanooga, TN to cruise the Great Loop in October, 2019. CaroLinn travelled as far as Vero Beach, FL arriving in March, 2020. She is now docked in Fort Pierce, FL.
Some of the work the current owners have completed since April, 2014 include: a full soft enclosure for the cockpit which makes CaroLinn much more versatile; replaced the full enclosure for the flybridge; added the H30+ Hurley Marine davit system; the installation of a duplex bow thruster and two compact stern thrusters in December, 2019 ($30,000); the sanding and painting of the bottom also in December, 2019 ($14,000); 500 hour maintenance performed in October, 2018 at approximately 1,040 hours; and upgrade of the floor coverings and interior soft goods. The current owners are a construction professional and an interior designer and their attention to detail and design are evident throughout the entire yacht.
Her owners have made the difficult decision to sell her so that she can continue her Great Loop adventure, do coastal cruising, or be a luxury waterfront condominium for her next owners.
CaroLinn has a large swim platform which houses her West Marine tender. A transom door leads directly into the fully enclosed cockpit, which is large enough for entertaining.
