  • Custom helm deck window shades
  • Nautley dingy davit system (easily removable)
Also included are a spectacular set of service records that show the love that the yacht has recieved since day one.  All main engine and generator services are up to date, and a recent oil analysis is available for inspection.  The yacht is currently located at Long Bay Pointe Boating Resort in Virginia Beach, VA- only about 10 minutes from Norfolk International Airport.  Call the listing agent with any questions.
