43' Mikelson 43 '04 "Kai Ola"

Hard to find a more beautifully upgraded and maintained vessel than this Mikelson 43. In the last two years, the owner has spent over $155K in upgrades. Everything from installing a two-station bow thruster, all new Garmin instruments, cockpit enclosure, reupholstered helm seats and cushions, fresh water filtration system, new entertainment system, new flybridge flooring, new carpets and the list goes on.

On top of it hall, she has low engine hours and is the perfect vessel for Southern California waters. She is comfortable, seaworthy, dry and versatile.

A definite must see as you will not find a more spacious vessel in this size range.
