Item Description
Price: $ 41,900.00

Frui Vita is Latin for enjoy life. Built in Michigan, shes a solid coastal cruiser and live-aboard vessel. She has spent nearly her entire life in the mostly-fresh waters of the upper Chesapeake. In recent years she has been to the Bahamas (twice), Florida Keys (twice), and has made 9 trips along the Atlantic coast (ICW/offshore). Great shallow draft boat. She is fast cruises at 6.5 knots and handles well under sail. She goes nicely to weather and runs downwind fairly easily. You could race this boat if you wanted and probably win! She is comfortable as a day-sailer even though she is built for much more. Her owner has customized and improved her to be a self-sufficient distance cruiser that can easily be single-handed. Below deck there is plenty of head room and all the amenities one could want for living aboard. Center cockpit design allows for a spacious living area, including a large aft cabin with a queen-plus berth and a head large enough for 3 people (if you so desire). Her rich teak interior is in excellent condition and gives the boat a warm, classic feel. Current owner has lived aboard for 5 years and single-handed her more than 8000nm. Recently had 2 coats of bottom paint (2019), a beautiful full enclosure that turns the cockpit into usable living space and keeps crew warm and protected (2020), a thorough fuel tank polishing (2016), new batteries (2020), a new windlass (2017), an arch with davits and solar panels (2017), and many other parts replaced. She has been professionally maintained including regular oil changes every 100 engine hours. She is currently in the water in St. Augustine, FL. She is priced to sell quickly. Ready to immediately take you wherever you want to go.
