Description/Condition

THUNDER

THUNDER is a classic, yet entirely contemporary in terms of function and equipment, sport fishing cruiser built of the finest materials by famed Florida yacht builder George Luzier.   THUNDER’s owner has dedicated himself to maintaining THUNDER in impeccable condition.    THUNDER is powered by twin Mann diesels, arguably the finest available marine diesels for this type of yacht. Both engines have such low hours that by Mann diesel standards they can be said to be barely broken in.  

THUNDER'S owner has told of times in very rough conditions in the Gulf Stream when THUNDER easily handled the conditions, far better than the people on board!

Cannell, Payne & Page highly recommends THUNDER to anyone desiring a classic sport fisherman built to the highest standards on the market at an asking price that represents an attractive value as her owner most reluctantly makes her available for sale.

Comments

THUNDER is a classic, yet entirely contemporary in terms of function and equipment, sportfishing cruiser built of the finest materials by famed Florida yacht builder George Luzier. THUNDER’s owner of twenty-eight years has dedicated himself to maintaining THUNDER in impeccable condition. THUNDER is powered by twin Mann diesels, arguably the finest available marine diesels for this type of yacht. Both engines have such low hours that by Mann diesel standards they can be said to be barely broken in.  

THUNDER's owner is currently in the process of starting a three to four week varnish program and having her bottom painted.   As has always been the case, whatever is needed to maintain THUNDER in pristine cosmetic, structural and mechanical condition has always been done by her meticulous owner. 

Cannell, Payne & Page highly recommends THUNDER to anyone desiring a classic sportfisherman built to the highest standards on the market at an asking price that represents an attractive value as her owner most reluctantly makes her available for sale.
