FLYER has been with her present owner for about the past 20 years. For the first half of her life she cruised the west coast of the US. In the early 2000s she was transported to the east coast where she has cruised up and down from New England to the Caribbean and back again. FLYER has a full time captain onboard and she can be considered a "no expense spared" yacht. During 2007 and 2008 FLYER underwent a major refit. Some of the work included re-varnishing the interior, painting the hull, deck and spars, replacing the teak deck overlay in the cockpit, adding electronics and much more. She is somewhat unique because she has fiberglass side decks and coachroof with teak overlay in the cockpit area only. If you do not wish to go through the rigors and expense of refitting one of these all time classic yachts then you owe yourself a long hard look at FLYER. She is very special and highly recommended.
