    Broker's Comments

    This boat was submerged through a leak in the exhaust system. She was raised in the next 24 hours. Once she was raised the owner decided to do a complete refit. The boat was restored from the hull up with rebuilt engines and transmissions. She received new interior walls, floor treatments, cabinetry, and updated wiring to modern standards. Everything inside the boat is new She has both Marine and RV Air Conditioners. The Generator was never reinstalled but it can easily be done with either a marine unit or a large household unit. There is ample space for both.
