Stern Mistress" is a clean, well thought out, well maintained boat. She offers ample room for the sailors who wants to go to sea in a boat that will keep them safe yet not wear them out because it is "manageable". The wheelhouse is a tremendous feature on a boat this size, giving protection from the elements, fantastic visibility and cozy comfort while at anchor.
A couple who understands the benefits of a seaworthy layout will appreciate this fine yacht. This boat is simply perfect for the Bahamas, Florida Keys or other destinations that are a challenge for the deeper drafts. She's affordable, ready and waiting. Call today for a showing appointment. This is a preliminary listing. More pictures to follow.
