A robust and characterful motorsailer with excellent accommodation. The enclosed wheelhouse provides full protection against inclement weather and make her an all-year-round performer. The moderate draft makes her ideal for exploring the shallow waters of the East coast and beyond. The sensible asking price reflects the fact that 'Sea Otter' is in need of some general maintenance work as well as a new gearbox for the engine. The engine is in working order but a prospective purchaser may wish to fit a complete new engine rather than source another gearbox for the current engine.
