General comments by vendor

The boat is beautiful both inside and outside,  It is extremely well maintained on both the interior as well as the exterior and the mechanical side as well.  The syndicate is financially well looked after as well.  We have loved our time on board, and will be a little sad to leave.  But some lucky person will be getting a fantastic share on a wonderful boat.
