Durable cruiser and island base camp, many updates throughout.

Refit by Rybovich Spencer in 1997 that was a complete rebuild, all equipment removed except engines.

Complete sprayed paintjob at American Custom Yacht Boatyard 2016.


Here is a unique offering of a pedigree design (McCurdy & Rhodes) built by a quality USA shipbuilder (Paasch Marine Services, Erie, Pennsylvania) using high quality Aluminum.  This vessel was refitted by the Rybovich yard around 1997 and has always been maintained in yacht fashion. In 2016, she was lavished with a full exterior painting at the American Custom Yachts yard and now she is offered for sale at a realistic asking price due to a change in her owners dynamics.  A few of her highlights, include Naiad Stabilizers, dual generators, chilled water air-conditioning, bow thruster, watermaker, sat TV dome, and a spacious full beam master stateroom aft with King Berth.  A walk-in engine room with a separate pump/electrical room, handsome high bulwarks and a nice sized aft-deck and cockpit.  Her spacious flybridge boasts generous seating beneath a laced-canvas half-tower and further aft she holds a Novurania HBI tender with 4-stroke Yamaha outboard, plus there is plenty of space for chaise loungers and a comfortable bar/table.  A very cook-worthy galley up on the main-deck with full size appliances including oven & dishwasher, plus a full washer and dryer.

Docked in Ft. Lauderdale and it's easy to arrange a showing.  Specifications will be added to this spec soon, although almost all the photos posted are recently taken and accurate.


Sleeps 6 owners and guests in 3 staterooms, plus 2 settee berths for a total of 8 berths
