1978 Formosa 46

Norfolk, Virginia

$59,000

This is a proper cruising boat that has had only THREE owners and has been cruised and cared for by her owners. Take a look at the "full specs". She had been cruised from 2005-2016 and has typical gear for this use: charts, safety equipment, lines, fenders, grill, lunch hook, spares, dingy, liferaft, etc. She has fiberglass decks and cabin top, updated standing rigging and chain plates. Boat has been sitting for a little while with sails and canvas removed. She is all there and waiting for her new owner to give a little TLC and get back out cruising! Motivated seller!
