Description

INFINITY defies her age in many ways not the least of which is her usage profile of light but regular seasonal use with less than 1000 hours on her engine and genset.  This boat has been babied by her owner and it shows.  Open every drawer and see the organization; note the batteries removed from each remote and stored in a labelled zip lock bag.  LIft every floorboard and there is no dust or dirt to be found.  No scratches on the table.  Sparkling gelcoat on deck.  New sails.  Smart looking tender.  Outboard motor bracket with Yamaha 2 stroke outboard almost new.  Excellent specification.  Offered for sale by her original American owner and built to US specifications.  Clean as a whistle.  She smells good.  This is the kind of brokerage boat to buy.  One that has always been cared for my her owner and always professionally maintained by Carribean Yacht Management located at Nanny Cay Marina and Boatyard on the Island of Tortola.  CYM is the authorized Oyster Service in the Virgin Islands;  a company that has cared for many Oysters over the years.

For the music and DVD lovers there is a custom system by Linn Audio which allows for individual choice throughout the boat and storage for hundreds of CD's and Music on the server aboard.

Full reverse cycle AC/Heat.  Excellent Navigation electronics and instrumentation.  Fresh non-skid paint on the deckhouse.  Full complement of safety gear.  The list of optional equipment goes on.

We invite your inquiry and inspection.  This is a special offering that is sure to attract immediate attention.

INFINITY is realistically priced and seriously offered for sale.  Recently Oyster-Brokerage inspected and sea trialed, she was put through her paces in 25+ knots of wind and found to be fully sound and a joy to sail.
