Broker Comments:

"Caroline" is a 1984, 62' Striker. It's a long distance sports fisherman; easily driven from the fly bridge with the panorama  view. The large cockpit, bright spacious salon, clean and uncluttered galley and three staterooms makes living aboard  a pleasure.

A major plus to this yacht is the newly installed solar system that creates the electrical power needed to run all systems - including the air conditioners. This provides the  unique advantage of not being tethered to a dock and enjoying all the creature comforts of this outstanding boat.

The aluminum hull  has been serviced in 2016: two coats of epoxy and two  coats of anti-fouling paint. This yacht is ready to go.
