Broker Remarks

She was originally built as a 72' Motor Yacht and had a cockpit extension done by Rybovich/Spencer in 1995 when the bow thruster was also added, and fresh Flag Blue awlgrip was done as well. ELSA-B is a very desirable vessel and given it's condition and maintenance history, we're confident this will go quickly. She truly is a stunning looking vessel and very seriously for sale.
