RowDay-O

NEW LOWER PRICE

OFFERS WELCOME FROM $1,150,000.00 (CAD)

On A 2014 Cutter Custom Designed 68 ft Aluminum Vessel

The owner of ROWDAY’O will entertain all serious offers to achieve an immediate sale. As a proven offshore performer with very economical operating costs, she is an excellent purchase opportunity. Everyone who steps on board is impressed by her cosmetic and technical condition – a must-see!

The owner of this vessel was looking for something special in a boat and turned to Al Whitacre, a well-known designer/builder of custom power coast guard cutters. The cutter design has a reputation of being undeniably reliable in heavy seas and its low displacement makes it an economically efficient vessel. And ROWDAY’O has aptly demonstrated these qualities for her current owner on several occasions.

ROWDAY’O boasts long-range capability with large onboard storage capacity for fuel, water and food. The internal Seakeeper ensures optimum stabilization and the robust full-length keel provides excellent tracking as well as added prop protection when needed. The extra-thick aluminum sheeting used in the hull makes ROWDAY’O a strong boat you can confidently take anywhere.

All of this rugged capability comes with style and comfort. The interior is gorgeous with its open-concept layout, beautiful hardwood finishes, large windows and ample headroom throughout. Three staterooms, two heads, an efficient galley, a lovely salon, a well-appointed wheelhouse and an open-air flybridge are perfect for a couple’s retreat, a family get-away or an adventure of a lifetime.

If you are looking for the boat of you dreams, you owe it to yourself to see ROWDAY’O.

Let’s make your dreams a reality. Call us today to book a private viewing.

Specs From the Owner

RowdayO displaces per inch of incremental displacement around 7,000 lbs. 5 tons of incremental weight will put her down around an inch and a half.

For a lot of reasons, she loves 9.5/10 kts. Any slower and you want to run hard every so often to keep turbos clean.

She doesn’t really start to make a wake till 8 knots

Just click engines in gear with clean hull and you are 5.5/6 knots. Racing sailboats at 600 rpm👍🏽

When you are whale watching in 3/5 foot chop and the Seakeeper gyro is on, you only go up and down. Everyone else has clients on board their boats being tossed around while RowDay-O keeps herself stable

A beautiful vessel where folks will hale you on radio to compliment looks. One-of-kind!
