From Sailing Magazine:

Conclusion "The boat has design features that can only be found in new boats costing many times more. The 52 represents a unique blend of living space and underway performance..... With prices ranging from $125,000 to just over $200,000 it is a lot of boat for the buck."

Are you in interested in selling your boat
or are you ready to buy a boat?

I have been very fortunate to have spent much of the last 12 years cruising aboard our boat with my amazing family. I have cruised the east coast from Maine to Florida several times and have sailed to Bermuda. I rode out hurricanes Sandy and Irene. With that cruising life came the knowledge developed from the personal restoration and reconfiguration of our boats both sail and power. I am eager to share the knowledge gained in my hands on approach to boating and the passion I have for this incredible lifestyle!  I am always looking for new quality listings to connect to new owners.

I work tirelessly for my clients in assisting them in locating, previewing and purchasing boats in addition to selling their boats. If I can assist you in your pursuit of “simply messing about in boats” I would be honored.
