C’EST LA VIE has a mostly freshwater history. She was purchased in Michigan from her first owner in the spring of 2013.
Since that time she has lived at River Forrest Marina inside in an airconditioned storage facility (see photos at end of listing). She is moved out for about three months a year for owner use then it’s back up to freshwater on the Okeechobee waterway for inside storage. (Owner uses his other Netpunus in Canada).
Consequently C’EST LA VIE shows better than most of the yachts from her vintage.
For sale by a multiple boat owner C’EST LA VIE offers great looks, recent updates and a very livable three cabin interior with an open Galley deck plan.
Although all Neptunus models are great sea boats C’EST LA VIE has digital Naiad stabilizers to help smooth the seas!
All photos Feb. 2019 to show present condition.
Actual LOA is 70'.
