Boat Description

Price just reduced for quick sale. This is an AMAZING opportunity! 


If this boat were a pet, it would be an indoor pet, fed only good food, have a sleek and shiny coat, and back recently from the vet’s with a certificate of excellent health. Instead, this is a beautiful power boat built to Lloyds of London standards in the UK, kept in a boat house her entire life, with about $60,000 CAD spent on a refit in 2021.

Her fully-serviced engines have only 1,281 hours and are begging you to put more on them, so welcome aboard! Get to where you really want to be by using the two helms, the radar, and big touch-screen display. Drop the anchor and turn on the fully-serviced 4kW genset if you want to. Have a bubble bath in the tub, get out, dry off, cook the day’s catch, and watch the sunset from the comfort of the teak aft deck or the flybridge. Enjoy this with your favourite people and a glass of something delicious.

Do this every day until you can’t stand the joy of it anymore and head for the home port. Use the brand-new bow and stern thrusters to side-slide into your slip. Unload the boat, load up the car, and from the top of the ramp, look back and think, “Wow! I have the best possible life!”

Call me immediately, don’t wait a single instant. Life’s too short.
