Injury forces sale ! Possible partial trade for real estate! Owner says SELL NOW!

Owner has an incredible Grand Banks Alaskan Trawler and this great Formosa 51 sailing vessel and has asked us to sell both. Will consider discount to two boat buyer.

The Eagle is a fine vessel awaiting her next adventure. She is a strong and roomy cruiser with three separate staterooms and crews quarters. Her healthy 6 cylinder Ford Lehman diesel moves her at a reported 7-8 knots. Mexico and California coastal veteran she is proven and stable.

Don't let the low price dissuade you from checking this boat out. These boats are found all over the world as they are true world cruisers and are typically priced in the $170,000 range. At $76,900 you have a lot of room to customize her with anything you desire.

New topsides paint, new bottom paint, newer rigging, upholstery, refrigeration, etc.

She and her matching dinghy are a sight to behold.
