Broker's Comments and Remarks
"Robyn's Nest" is a gorgeous very pampered private yacht that has rarely been fished and never chartered. With only two owners since new, she has only been used for summer seasons in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. She' been kept in bristol condition with no expense spared. Only eight 56' Post Convertible Flybridge Sport Fisherman were ever built.
"Robyn's Nest" stands out as the best in its class for any brand, not just Post Yachts of similar or even later vintages. This yacht boasts excellent performance with great speed and fuel economy and appears "like new" in many ways with a custom full paint of hull, deck and superstructure in the winter of 2017/2018, it has the look and feel of a much more expensive and newer custom built yacht. The current owner also added Veem props and updated important navigation and electronics such as the radar and other mechanical features such as redundant Air Conditioning cooling pumps etc... This is a true "Turn Key" yacht that is ready to cruise in comfort and style. This very special, light use, low hour boat is a "must see" for a selective and discriminating cruising yachtsman or game fisherman (just add the outriggers).
