Priced well for a quick sale. Must sell by June 1 or it is coming off the market so don't delay if you have an interest. This was a fresh water boat in Lake Michigan up until the 2017 season when it came to Connecticut waters. Set up for single handed or crewed racing or fast cruising. Needs a good buffing, cleaning and general maintenance. Please watch the video tour to get a good idea of overall condition.
