  • Full Details


Recent major $150K refit.  Needs nothing.  Imagine cruising the beautiful Inside Passage this season in style.

ARIES II is a traditional flush deck motoryacht.  She would be perfect as a liveaboard or to cruise our fantastic coastline.  At one time Pacemaker rivaled the likes of ChrisCraft, Burger and Hargraves.  Pacemaker was founded in 1949 by Charles Platt (C.P.) Leek and until 1976 when they converted to fiberglass construction were regarded as the epitome of the New Jersey-style wood hull motor yachts.  Pacemaker was associated with both Egg Harbor and Ocean Yachts until it ceased production in 1980. 

The Pacemaker 60 is constructed with an epoxy saturated mahogany and a glass over mahogany superstructure.  She has graceful lines with beautiful proportions in her layout.

ARIES II has had recent updates by both Philbrooks and West Bay.  Her decks and brightwork absolutely gleam.  She has been boathouse kept.  This gorgeous yacht is ready to take you wherever you want to go.

Starboard engine has just had a frame up rebuild by K&W Diesel.  Bridge deck upholstery has just been redone.  The cost of the upgrades easily outweighs the asking price for this amazing ready-to-go yacht.
