VIRTUAL TOUR - VIDEO - 80 TO 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL! Manufactured by King Yachts in Taiwan (ROC), under the strict oversight of the ROC Navy to ensure adherence to construction standards, this yacht was built by the successor yard to that which built Sea Ranger Yachts. Although manufactured overseas, the yacht is reportedly exempted from the Jones Act and the current owner, with supporting documentation, operates the boat as a charter and carries passengers for hire. A buyer would want to confirm this exemption. This vessel has been owned and maintained by the same owner since it was built. She's cruised the west coast from Canada to Panama and ventured into the Caribbean. This vessel has a Panama Canal Ship Identification Number, simplifying future passages through the Canal. The engines and gensets were replaced in 2000 and are reported to be professionally maintained. They are run regularly, and an extensive collection of spare parts (the best onboard inventory that I've seen) would allow one to cruise with confidence. This vessel has some unique features, including the addition of a bulbous bow which improves hull performance and efficiency. Twin engines and twin gensets provide redundancy and safety on long voyages. This vessel is a well laid out pilothouse design with three staterooms that accommodate six comfortably, and two heads with a pantry easily convertible to an additional head, if desired. There is enough space topside that two RIBs may be secured side by side. The vessel's construction feels and appears solid throughout, and the craftsmanship, condition, and extent of the teak woodwork throughout the cabin is truly impressive. Everything is teak - the decks, cabinets, furniture, bulkheads, overheads, and doors. Due to the owner's age, the exterior of this vessel would benefit from a good detailing, however, this appears to be a terrific opportunity - in terms of the mechanical equipment, interior layout and condition, spares, and thoughtful additions. This vessel has a lot to offer for the serious cruisers, liveaboards, or those interested in running a micro cruise / research vessel. These boat details are subject to contract.
