Priced to cruise at 270K! She's an Audrey Hepburn boat if there ever was!

It is a dream boat! Wow. I checked your web page for details, spectacular everything. I would take it any day..
Now, I just need to double my money and relocate to VA.
Why don't they more of these type of yachts?

Never knew S&S designed anything but sailboats. A stunner. Hope it sells well.

Go to the S & S website and you'll see they have a long history of designing power boats. One model was put into production by Richardson Boats and became very popular 'back in the day'.

With that long bow overhang it must have been designed before WLL became so important. Kinda wish my Willard had a near plumb stem but it wouldn't look as salty. Tiny bit more speed but who cares.

Did they reduce the fuel tank size in a refit, or did it always have 500 gallons?

S&S design #2468, done in 1983 for a Dale Denning. No builder listed, reflected in the price. Original name Esprit, 53'8" x 46'8" x 15'10" x 4'8". Odd arrangement with the galley in the back of the pilothouse and big open dayroom downstairs. Tight engine space. Lot's up top and not much underneath.....

All original tankage with all hoses going to a valve and manifold room beneath the companion way on the starboard side. Single fills with valving to all tanks. The engine room is actually very spacious.

She's a beaut!

Mark, have you been on the boat underway? Wondering if those bilge keels have much effect on the roll.

No I have not been on her underway. You would never know the effect without comparing the boat with and without the keels.
