We don't use this phrase lightly - this boat has been meticulously maintained. This Nova Sundeck Aft Cabin could be the cleanest and best maintained boat of its vintage we have ever seen.  

She has twin Volvo TMD41A diesels with 165hp and 1291 hours, a sound shielded Kohler 8kw gen, Purasan treatment system, and tons more. The sundeck features a great hardtop with full isinglass and screen enclosures, a wetbar, and wing doors for protection from the weather. Her flybridge has beautiful cushioned benches for guests to enjoy the view and an updated captain's chair. The bridge also has a full canvas enclosure, screens, and there are black out panels for all the canvas curtains.

Her interior shows craftsmanship throughout with all the amenities you need. There's a nice seating in the salon, a comfortable dinette for 4-6 people, and a galley ready for a chef's creations. Forward, there is a guest stateroom with a head and plenty of storage. The master stateroom in the aft cabin has a large walk around berth, cabinets, closets and drawers everywhere, and a private head with separate stall shower.

If you are thinking of living on the water or just need a capable cruiser for the Bay, Delta, and Beyond, this is your yacht. Please call us today to arrange a viewing of this beautiful boat.
