ACCOMODATIONS

The main cabin is very spacious with seating on both sides due to the relocation of the galley.

A WORK IN PROGRESS

Osprey is a very comfortable cruising home on the water capable of safely completing any coastal or Great Loop trip. Her well equipped galley, easily operated fuel system and new bridge deck greatly add to her appeal.

 

Additional work that could be considered by her new owners include painting the fiberglass main decks, refinishing the interior window frames and main cabin sole. While serviceable, the upholstery is showing its age and new covers would make the cabin look first-rate.

 

The deck hatch and slides have not yet been re-mounted and the interior surfaces of the bridge cowl need to be refinished.
