MEET, "BOSCO": THE PERFECT CRUISING COUPLES BOAT WITH PLENTY OF ROOM FOR GUESTS. HAVING OWNED A TARTAN 37 FOR MANY YEARS, I WAS AMAZED AT THE LIVING SPACE ABOARD THIS ISLAND PACKET 31. THIS BOAT FEELS MORE LIKE 35-37' ON BOARD. TAKE TIME TO PERUSE THE ATTACHED INTERIOR PHOTOS TO GET A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT THAT MEANS. IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN CURIOUS AS TO THE TRUE DEFINITION OF THE EXPRESSION "CRUISE READY", THEN "BOSCO" WILL PROVIDE THE ANSWER. A NEW YANMAR DIESEL, INSTALLED LAST YEAR, WITH JUST UNDER 500 HOURS RUNNING AND ANOTHER 500 HOURS OR 1 YEAR OF WARRANTY REMAINING IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. THIS VESSEL IS COMPLETELY SELF SUFFICIENT AT ANCHOR THANKS TO A NEW SOLAR AND WIND GENERATION INSTALLATION. RATHER THAN ME CONTINUE, YOU MAY REST ASSURED THESE PICTURES SAY FAR MORE THAN "A THOUSAND WORDS" EVER COULD. BETTER YET, ARRANGE TO GET ABOARD AS YOU WILL BE AMAZED!

VIDEO'S ON YOU TUBE ARE EVEN BETTER....SAIL "BOSCO" ALONG WITH JAKE AND JILL AS THEY UP-FIT FOR AND REALIZE THEIR CRUISING DREAM

FULL SPECIFICATIONS ARE ATTACHED TOO AND "NEW" MEANS "NEW" 2015 OR LATER
