When the original owner bought Bongo new in 2004 almost every option available was purchased. This included custom upholstery for the dinette, Isinglass and screen cockpit enclosures, engine driven cabin heater, aft love seat, Screecher sail and track, cockpit cushions, davits, 16,500 Btu air conditioner, helm seat and solar panel.
The boat was outfitted for long duration travel and the owner took his family from Annapolis down the Inter Coastal Waterway (ICW) to Florida and back. Bongo has been updated and maintained as needed including new batteries, water heater, screecher, bottom paint, head and new Sillette outdrive.
