“Paradiddle” in Youngstown, NY

Broker’s comments: Only three owners in 33 years, all kept the boat on a mooring here at the Youngstown Yacht Club! RCR sold the boat new and it has enjoyed the fresh water environment ever since. A clean interior that feels bigger with the open bow layout. The beautiful blue cushions below along with pressure hot & cold water, a full-sized marine head and a galley for making meals if you’re on a nice vacation aboard. Powered by a Yanmar 18HP diesel, roller furling headsail and wheel steering with a decent sized cockpit for 6 and a hard to find double berth aft cabin as well!

Located at the Youngstown Yacht Club and may be seen at any time with prior notice. Contact RCR Yachts listing broker: Tim Finkle at 860-917-5416 or
