Brokers Notes:
Dove III has been a fresh water boat for the last 27 years. She has been well kept and shows it.
You have room to put your feet up, room to entertain guests, a large galley to work in and an enormous aft stateroom. You won’t anything like this in a trawler.

Dove III is a roomy complete live-a-board which could also be easily at home on the loop!
