This particular boat has many unique and thoughtful additions that were incorporated at the time of original construction.  Larger berths, squared-off dinette backrests, full sized settee/berth in place of the saloon love seat, taller Bimini cover with zipped on sides and back that fully enclose the cockpit, enhanced lighting inside and out, varnished mahogany sole boards in place of the fiberglass sole hatches…these are but a few of the features you will not find on any other Super Maramu Millennium.  This is a one and only example of all the best that could be incorporated into this design.  Put simply, this is the best equipped, best outfitted Super Maramu on or off the market today.  In addition, the seller has left appliances, dishes, and safety equipment on the boat for the new owner.  Bring your cloths, personal items, and provisions and you are ready to cruise.
