This vessel was originally purchased by a doctor from Boston who had several other boats in Florida and Massachusetts and only used this boat occasionally at his winter home. When purchased by its current owner in June of 2010, it only had 120 hours. The current owner lived in area that was very close to good sailing waters and also did not put many hours on the boat. It only has about 318 hours. The boat was kept on a lift behind the owner's house and had an electrical surge caused by a nearby lighting strike which rendered several of the electronics on the vessel inoperative. They were replaced in 2014. In 2016 the bottom was painted and she was moved to her current marina in Cortez, FL.
Beginning forward is the forward Stateroom, with privacy door, followed by the salon, with straight bench settee to port and starboard. A folding dinette table is mounted on the mast compression post. Aft and to port is the chart table with the refrigeration box below. Opposite is the L-shaped galley, and opposite the galley is the enclosed head and shower compartment. Lastly, is the aft cabin with a double athwart ship berth with a privacy curtain.
