She can be used as summer home on the waterways or with a few modifications as a treasure hunting, commercial or research vessel. We have put a lot of time, sweat and tears into her with the intention of taking her thru the Panama Canal. Unfortunately our plans have changed and we have been unable to use her as often as we intended to. She is completely re-done on the inside including the engine room and interior finishes, only leaving the exterior to be re-painted. We are asking $365,000 with the cost of painting the exterior, taken into account. All serious offers will be considered. A copy of a 2011 appraisal survey will be provided to serious inquiries only. All original plans and drawings are also available along with additional photos. Currently dry docked in Stuart,FL.
