43' Wauquiez Amphitrite '85 "Party Time"

Wauquiez Amphitrite’s are well known as strong, well-found vessels with an underbody that helps the maneuverability and performance. This vessel was purchased with the intent to go cruising and the current owner has been working toward that goal. The engine was replaced with a low hour Yanmar that was overhauled. Sails and rigging are intact and look to be in serviceable condition. She has an extensive complement of older electronics that power up but the actual condition and accuracy will need to be determined. The interior wood is in good condition. She could use some cushions and re-upholstery to make her look fresh. There is a watermaker that has not been used in several years so the condition is unknown. This vessel is a solid cruiser with much equipment included but could use a handy person to personalize it to a state they’re happy with. She is priced accordingly, as these boats in good condition can sell for over $100k.
