~ Broker's Comments:
A great value by any measure or comparison, Sea-Going Capability per dollar, Tonnage per dollar, Living Space per dollar, Power per dollar, Feet in Length per dollar, Systems per dollar, the list can go on. Manufactured by the Kato Boatworks Yard in Japan this vessel was constructed from plans that were derived from the popular Bertram 58 design.

It is a FRP hull with the decks and portions of the house made from aluminum. She's been used as a comfortable live-aboard and has a huge amount of space (over 800 square feet!).

This vessel has traveled to Mexico and is a multiple time Alaskan veteran. With the deep "V" hull and stabilizers it makes her a suitable ocean traveling vessel. Her Command Bridge feels like a ship with great visibility and lots of seating. This vessel also boasts a hard cover enclosed bridge deck. It is well equipped for extended cruises and features systems for pot pulling and fishing (with deck mounted freezers).

The aft deck and cockpit are large areas for fishing or entertaining. Built very robustly this vessel compares favorably to either a Bertram or Hatteras Convertible, a Californian CPMY or even an Egg Harbor Yachtfisher.
