Sweet Caroline is a well maintained cruiser that offers both the comfort of cruising and the speed to get where you are going efficiently with her twin 385 Crusaders. She was repowered in 2005, along with new transmissions, shafts and props. Her current owner has had her twelve years, and just about each year he has replaced or upgraded various systems throughout the vessel--blower fans, water heater, windlass & radar, 2002; Garmin in 2003; fridge, canvas, strut bearings, generator rebuild, 2004; engines, 2005; cabin sole, 2006; outboard 2007; inflatable 2010; upholstery 2011. Not only has she been gently used, she has been stored inside during the off-seasons and professionally maintained. Her interior is immaculate with satin finished teak throughout the well laid-out and spacious cabin along with an attractive teak and holly cabin sole. Her replacement cost is about $400K. She is an excellent value, and we recommend her highly.
