Priced to sell!


This world sailing yacht is a fresh water boat only. No rust or corrosion on rigging or deck hardware. Did you know salt water and salt air turns stainless steel brittle over time, not to mention all of the other negative affects of salt water? 

Delivered to Lake Erie for the original/present owner, Gracious Living III has only been on the Great Lakes. This Vagabond 47 Voyager is a true Bluewater Yacht, capable of cruising the world. It is a William Garden design and will turn heads no matter what far-off harbor you pull into. A generator with a sound shield was installed around 2000 and has very low running hours. The sails are original, but have not been used much, due to the short seasons here. They are reported to be 10oz. dacron. The boat has not been used in the last couple of years. The engine is all original with around 1700 hours. This is a Ford tractor engine by design and is nearly bullet proof. Schedule an appointment to see this beautiful yacht soon! Gracious Living III is on the hard now.
