Casper Yacht Description

CASPER underwent a complete refit in 2017 at Hinckley Yacht Services and is as close to a new 29R as you will find. She is in excellent condition and features a new Yanmar 440-hp electronically controlled engine, C-Zone switching (found only in new boats), new hull paint, teak stripped and revarnished, new upholstery, new Garmin and Fusion electronics, new bimini top, and replacement or updating of many systems. There are no surprises on her- Hinckley fixed everything found during the refit. CASPER is not only stunning in every way, but she is an exceptional value as well. She is truly in “like new” condition without the wait.
