1982 Peterson 44

San Diego, California


44' Peterson 44 '82 "Serendipity"

SERENDIPITY is undoubtably one of the best Peterson 44s that I have laid my eyes on! The current owners are the second owners and they have owned her since 1991. The knowledge and pride of ownership sparkles as SERENDIPITY has enjoyed the benefit of constant upgrades and loving care.

A must see for anybody considering a stout, nice-sailing cruising boat.
