She was built in La Conner, Washington by La Conner Boat Works. They built ferries and fishing vessels. This was a custom job for a Microsoft Executive who wanted to be able to contend with Dead Heads and not have to worry about ripping out a shaft and going to the bottom. Naval Architect Howard Appolonio designed her and La Conner Boat Works built her. Howard Appolonio who now designs some of the finest yachts available. The vessels he builds today are mega yachts. Ultimately the safety of this yacht is impeccable.

The aluminum hull makes her more survivable, as it bends when hitting something vs. Fiberglas that cracks and then in comes the water. The quality of the vessel is realized when your down in the engine room and you see things like the sea chest, where the water intakes come in. This way you don't have to dive on her to remove a plastic bag or debris you just open the top of the sea chest, clear the debris, change the impellers on what ever water pump was affected and your up and running again.

It has two state rooms each with a bathroom. The master has a king bed, the forward stateroom has a queen. The salon is as large as some living rooms and can easily fold out two high quality large sofa fold out beds. There is one leather sofa fold out bed in the salon right now. My wife and I have spent the night more than once on the two sofas on the bridge because it is so nice up there and those sofas are really soft and comfortable. I am 6' 5" tall and my wife is 5'-5" and we both slept comfortably on the bridge. There is a sink a refer and cabinets all on the upper level of the bridge. Just out the door on the same level is a small full bathroom. It has a retractable showerhead in the sink area with a drain in the floor. The other bathrooms have super nice fiberglass built-ins with great water pressure and invigorating Grohe quality shower.

The master stateroom has tons of storage, cabinets with drawers and closets, even storage under the bed. It has his and hers vessel sinks made of solid brass with Grohe fixtures. The her side has a built in vanity with drawers and legal size drawers for use as a vanity and office area. There is a built in TV armoire in front of the king size bed. There is DC and AC lighting throughout the yacht, hookups for cable, phone etc with wall jacks throughout the yacht.

The forward stateroom shares a full head with the guests who stay in the salon. There is also a separate vanity with stool and porcelain vessel sink and spacious medicine cabinets. There are cabinets and storage and closets all the way around the forward state room including under the bed. There are custom drawers around the bottom of the bed as well. Over the vanity is a built in area for a TV with wall jacks.

The bridge also has accommodations for sleeping and living in comfort. There is a full head right out side of the bridge. All of the plumbing in the showers and sinks throughout the yacht have high-end Grohe fixtures and custom high end sinks all with an instant hot water circulator.

One very nice feature about the jet drive system is not having to worry about hitting something with props and or having to dive to clear a prop from fishing lines and things like that. Between the engines is what is called a sea chest. It is a tall box that is built into the hull with a heavy duty Plexiglas top that allows you to see to the bottom if you want. You can see it in the photo, it has the coast guard hull number on it. She was designed so the seawater intake for all of the cooling systems comes in through the sea chest. For instance, if one of the intakes gets blocked by say, a plastic bag; on most boats you would have to dive to clear it. But with the sea chest you simply unbolt the top piece of plexiglas to clear the intake.

The engines are Saab Scania and are designed for heavy duty full time industrial usage. They, in terms of longevity are not even broke in yet and will most likely outlive you, according to the engine surveyor who was quite impressed. Like I said before my wife and I were not going to sell this vessel except for unforeseen circumstances.

If you search the internet you will find the only vessels of this size that are selling for less than $500,000 have wooden hulls and are older. Other vessels her size and look are over a million, not to mention her superior design and safety features. The insurance replacement cost of this yacht is 1.5 million.

If you really like the boat as much as we do, we will accept the best reasonable offer. We hope she goes to a good home.
Please, if you do not have the financial means to purchase a vessel such as this then please, please don't waist both of our time. Thank you very much.
