Vessel overview

BOA VIDA is a prime example of the popular Carver 56 Voyager. Known for its cavernous interior, the Voyager is an excellent choice for those looking to do the loop, liveaboard, or local to long distance coastal cruising.

The owners have taken loving care of her and have made many upgrades to the boat over the tenure of their ownership. Serviced annually, and kept in excellent condition (the interior shows nearly new) this is an excellent opportunity. She's priced aggressively as they would like to see this one sell so they can move into their next vessel.

Please call for additional details. Owners are encouraging reasonable offers.
