Lighthouse Point, Florida

$74,900

Your imagination and creativity are your only limitations. So many possibilities with this well maintained former US Navy hull produced by Willard Marine in 1991. 

She would be ideally suited for a Live Aboard considering her current layout. Very spacious cabin offers a large galley with seating area and two staterooms. Master is aft and guest is to the starboard side with two offset over under bunks each with its own head. A rough canvas ready for a decorative touch. 

Powered by a single Cummins Diesel 6BTA producing 120 HP so she is slow but steady. Assisted by a Vetus Bow Thruster to make her handling ideal for the novice. Onboard Phasor 3.5 kW generator with 550 total hours of operation and Mitsubishi Air Conditioning (New 2022).

Used for the past several years as the base vessel for several Fort Lauderdale Winter Fest entries winning among others accolades “Best in Show. ”

Resembling a Dutch Canal Vessel she is Ready to Go!

History of "Millie"

Originally constructed by Willard Marine for the US Navy in 1991 as a Launch to tender up to 150 passangers to and from ships at anchorage and across ports. The "Gunston Hall" was sold as surplus. Her new owner decided to create a substantial cabin vessel suitable for long journeys and as a live a board. With numerous updates and improvements were added to this all fiberglass hull including substanial additional tankage of 960 US Gal Diesel Fuel to propel the six cylinder Cummins Diesel with a SOG of 11 Knots. A Phasor 5 kW Generator completed the live aboard requirements.
