After a summer hiatus, she's back on the market at a MUCH lower price!

"New Beginnings" is the perfect couple or family cruiser!

She features a large cockpit with a hardtop and enclosure giving her even better year-round capabilities and ideal for those cruise outs where everybody sterns in as well as easy boarding and some fishing. Her knowledgeable owner has maintained her extremely well and has kept a ship's log in good order.

She also boasts a great list of electronics.
