BLOSSOM represents a great opportunity to take over ownership of a meticulously cared for Bermuda 40 that is very well equipped and features many important upgrades. She is a beautiful boat both on the water and below and interested sailors are encouraged to view her in person. She is located on a mooring in Buck’s Harbor Maine, a destination worth a trip in itself.
