This proven boat could be called an Express Cruiser, a Motoryacht and even a Downeaster, but regardless, the quality and the pedigree of having been designed by C. Raymond Hunt and built by the reputable Dettling Yacht Company, has distinguished itself as a premier yacht with a superb reputation.

Ed Dettling has produced some of the finest US built boats since he started in 1992. It has been said that he has a "relentless pursuit of perfection". That coupled with the reputation of C. Raymond Hunt designers and naval architects, with a long record of turning out some the finest, dryest, offshore performance hulls, make this boat quite exceptional. It is all about the details.

This boat can cruise economically at any speed up to 25 kts. and maxes out at 30 kts. At 20 kts. the fuel consumption is a mere 23 gphr. At 16 kts. the consumption is 17 gphr. All machinery is balanced into the aft section, therefore the noise levels inside the boat are minimal. The raised Express bridge, which can be open or closed, offers 360 degree visibility, allowing the owners to be able to cruise easily in quiet and comfort.  Not many of these solid, handsome boats hit the market. If you want to see a true example of fine craftsmanship, with a rich and warm interior, in absolutely great condition, don't miss the chance to inspect this fine cruising yacht. You will not be disappointed in what you find.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to personally inspect most of the Dettling Yachts that have been built.  Of those that I have been aboard, Crimson Star is, in my opinion, is the nicest example of these fine vessels.

Her owner had previously owned a earlier model.  She's in beautiful condition and has been maintained by the most knowledgeable Dettling captain.

This offering presents the unique opportunity to own the best example of this beautifully built high performance quality cruiser.
