This Antique classic Motor Yacht has a sleek and sexy design. It has been impeccably maintained and is ideal for cruising the Bay and Delta. A Cozy cabin and friendly salon make this boat available to rent out as an Air-Bnb. It has been upgraded with a Vacu-Flush head and has been re- modeled to include a hot and cold shower.  The spacious at deck is complete with comfortable furniture.

She was built in 1917 and has been meticulously maintained throughout her illustrious life

In recent years her plumbing has been upgraded with more efficient water pumps and a modern Vacu-Flush lavatory. Hot water and fuel tanks have also been upgraded. Steering is cable drive and new gauges were also recently installed.

She is easily one of the finest, most eye-catching vessels on the Bay.

In recent times she has been rented out as an Air-B&B with great success. It is an option to consider as a potential generator of income. Or you can simply cruise the Bay and Delta. 

 So to sum up there is surround bench seating and a fully enclosed aft deck. Canvas may be removed for full open air boating in the warmer months. 

There is easy access to the engine room, a rudder indicator, Tachometer, temperature gauge, and a 30 amp plug in for use with shore power. 

Proceeding down the companionway steps there is a hanging closet on the starboard side.

There are several storage cupboards and drawers also on the starboard side.

Turning to the port side you will see a large sink with a toaster and microwave on the countertop.

Proceeding down into the cabin there is a double bed and an L shaped couch and a table in the salon. 

There is lots of space forward including a modern Vacu-Flush toilet and hot and cold shower. The cabin also has a heater.

Overall, you will enjoy a stay on the water in the comfort and safety of a classic motor sailer.

So "what is cold molding" you  ask. It is a technique that has been used for many years to preserve the wood in older vessels .It involves laminating together layers of wood veneers on very thick planks to create a hull that is watertight, extremely strong and lightweight . Finally it is faired and painted wit AWLGRIP.

 For more information on this subject you can go to a site called the wooden boat school.

The motor has also been rebuilt. It is a 1937 Chrysler flathead six gasoline engine.

Now for the icing on the cake. The current owner has been running a successful Airbnb business on this vessel and generating 40K+ per year. He is willing to carry half the purchase in the form of a ship preferred mortgage with a term of three years at a rate of 6% interest.

I urge you to contact me asap to start a new life with this awesome boat.!!!!!
