1988 Nova 60

Alexandria Bay, New York


This is it...the boat you've been waiting for your entire life! Your dreams of traveling the world on a yacht can finally come true!

"Grace" has proven she can handle any trip you throw her way with her Reliable Twin Cat 3208TA engines, paired with her solid Nova-built hull. She is designed flawlessly to handle ocean travel...and has been to exciting ports like South America and the Bahamas, but is now enjoying the best freshwater boating you may find anywhere, and lovingly kept in heated winter storage to keep her in tip-top shape.

Boasting a tremendous amount of livable space, with two ensuite staterooms, a nicely equipped galley, a dinette that folds into a bed, a spacious salon with two sofas, an aft deck with additional dining and sleeping space, and an unbelievable cockpit flybridge lounge, with a grill, sink, freezer, and tons of storage, this yacht is the perfect luxury live-aboard for the adventurous spirit.

The previous owner realized the only thing this boat was missing was a large aft cockpit for scuba diving and other activities, so with an Incredibly capable design team (and $250,000), they were able to successfully add an additional 13 ft aft cockpit along with a solid fiberglass extended keel below, which has not only allowed them to both meet their requirements for a spacious and usable extension, but also an added 500 gallons of fuel capacity- extending the range of this boat to north of 1100 nautical miles at cruise!

If you are looking for a premium built yacht that is ready to start that trip now that you've been dreaming about, consider "Grace" as your next exploring fast trawler...stable, sturdy, spacious and designed for luxurious adventure. 

This yacht is truly one-of-a-kind, comfortably sleeps eight, and can go the distance. You won't find another yacht with these features at this price! Now is the time to stop dreaming about that dream trip you've been wanting to take is THE day to make your dream a reality!
