Estate Sale.  Must be sold asap.  

This is a little "ship" built by the well-known and still operating T.D. Vinette shipyard in Escanaba, Michigan. To say her construction is robust or like a battleship would be accurate. She has a sea kindly and efficient hull with her high bow, canoe stern, reverse windshield, and displacement hull. Her lines are strong and sure to be a major attraction wherever she travels. The engine is a 2000 John Deere Model 6068 with only 1,400 hours. The transmission is a 2000 Twin Disc MG-506R transmission turning a 30" wheel. These are all the things you want when you are looking at rough water or long distances on your cruising itinerary. 

She started out looking a bit different and the last owner undertook a major refit of the vessel enlarging the aft stateroom and top deck. There is a swim platform and dinghy davit system added to the stern and an aluminum supported soft top over the aft deck and flybridge areas. There are large interior spaces that will make cruising a dream and the exterior spaces, side decks and high bulkwarks make maneuverability safe.

The current owner was a friend of the past owner and purchased the boat from the estate, vowing to complete projects and make the boat a special boat. He has completed his promise. With consistent care, minor and major system upgrades, additions and subtractions of equipment, and interior refurbishment with teak and holly laminate, updated salon settee and chair, and new fabrics throughout, IRONY will not disappoint and is ready to take you most anywhere you wish to go in safety and security.

If you are searching for a steel passagemaker with truly unique, sturdy, and masculine lines this could be your boat!
