This yacht stands out with its exceptional build quality, luxurious features, and impressive sailing capabilities, making it an excellent choice for cruising sailors. With a replacement value exceeding $700,000, this vessel offers unparalleled value. “Evening Star” has had one owner, has never been chartered, and is fully outfitted for long-term, off-grid cruising. 

Key Features:

  • Spacious and Luxurious Interior: The 3-cabin, 2-head configuration provides ample space for family and guests, with a beautifully crafted light oak interior and dark oak (brown) floor.

  • Ergonomic Deck Layout: Features such as twin helm stations, a large cockpit with a full-function beautifully varnished teak table, and a fold-down transom enhance both safety and convenience onboard.
