VIRTUAL REALITY has spent more than 80% of her time in Fresh Water in the Great Lakes and was kept in heated storage for many years including her current location in Buffalo New York. With low hours on her 625hp Detroit DDEC’s, she can run comfortably at 20 knots plus below 1900rpm, where lower powered 50’s are running higher rpm. She also has less than 800 original hours on her generator and was ordered with the optional  gold package, has the full size TNT lifting extended swim platform, and in 2012 a new bow thruster was added for ease of operation. In the spring of 2013, a complete new bimini and full camper  enclosure was added and gives the yacht a more contemporary look, with complete detailing and waxing in August 2013. All dash panels at the helm were replaced in June 2012, in conjunction with other upgrades including a newer autopilot remote and exterior stereo system. She has two new flat screen TV’s yet to be installed, and three satellite receivers. Current owner has purchased larger yacht.
