  • She really is a beautiful boat,
  • I am on the road continuously and simply don't have time for her anymore.
  • I have a brand new custom graphics package that comes with her, must be seen to be appreciated.

    Asking $15k, I stepped the mast last weekend for a buyer who appeared with a speedboat cradle, and I've got little interest in restepping her if I can avoid it.

    She's at the Dallas Corinthian Yatch Club in Little Elm, TX. We have a hoist, I'll help load her when you're ready.
