Vessel Description

Broker Remarks

The "Free Enterprise" is a state of the art customized sport-fishing machine. Her spacious 4-stateroom layout and economical fuel burn make her perfect for fishing and traveling in any destination.  Free Enterprise is the second of six 65' American Custom Yacht 65's. She is offered for sale by her original owner whom has enjoyed her thoroughly. Her speed, ride, range and 4-stateroom comfort provide everything needed for a traveling. Free Enterprise is ready to finish with her strong CAT engines, new generator, Eskimo Ice Machine, large water maker and fresh bottom.  She represents a great value in today's market and is offered fully found for the price of duplicating her hull alone.  The replacement cost of a 65' American Custom yacht approaches $ 7,000,000.

Priced below $ 1,000,000 due to a small starboard cockpit fuel tank leak.
