“SILVER GHOST” is not to be considered in the same light as a typical Hatteras, Viking, or any of the other fiberglass pop-outs that park in the marinas. This is an amazingly strong, beautifully constructed and finished yacht that can go virtually anywhere. At one point in its history, it returned from Europe on its own bottom with bladder tanks in the cockpit over the Northern Route. Wherever you look, you will find excellent workmanship and the highest quality materials and equipment. The engine room is planned, designed and equipped for rough water, extended cruising with redundancy, a primary consideration, with easy access to the main engines, generators, pumps and other systems. The builder, Gladding Hearn, is noted for its superior commercial construction.…in “SILVER GHOST” the firm put a superior boat in the water.
This Owner has had the boat for 13 years, during which time he has constantly upgraded the gear and the cosmetics, while enjoying it with his friends and family. She is unique, a one-of-a-kind yacht, that will be greatly appreciated by any boater who intends to use his boat in blue water.
