It has been remodeled in the interior throughout, brand new enclosure done by Gioia Sails There are only 310 hours on a complete new installation of larger (2004 Engines updated and installed)  twin Volvo TAMD75P-A  just installed this past year which are 480h.p. each by a certified dealer mechanic which is well known in the industry. This boat is a must see for the offshore fisherman that wants a true 140 Square ft. large cockpit for comfort of fishing.  The owner was to offshore fish with all his children and family and with being a professional physician and with schedule of time has decided to get into a cruise style boat for the marina and stay closer to port for day trips.  You must see this offshore rugged fishing boat made for the true offshore fisherman which is well known in fishing boats built by one finest boat builders in the industry. Note: Interior updated New everything from cushions, Refrigerator, Microwave, Flooring on and on.
