"Finally Us" is a beautiful example of the vessels from the fine Taiwanese boatbuilding industry, heavy and toughly built, with exquisite interior joinery. The turbo charged Caterpillar 3208 diesels and the 8KW Kohler generator have been thoroughly inspected and tested, and the boat just returned from the shipyard with fresh bottom paint and any deficiencies corrected. She's in ready to move aboard condition, to live aboard, and to cruise to Catalina or Mexico or even farther afield. This boat will not be on the market long, so don't wait! Check out all the pictures and the full specifications and call the listing broker today for your personal appointment to view.
