Making Ocean passages is what this boat does best. It’s comfortable, well laid out and easy to handle for a boat of this size. FASCINATION has just returned from the owners last cruise and is ready for her next adventure. She has received special attention recently having her topsides and deck painted making her shine. Her varnish is freshly done and all hatches have covers giving this boat that complete look missing in so many used boats. The interior is in excellent condition with three AC units, very low hours on the generator and a new Yanmar engine installed in 2005. If you are looking for a good cruising boat you owe it to yourself to inspect FASCINATION.
