General condition and any additional information

The Merry Bee is a great mid-sized yacht that we have enjoyed for quite a few seasons. With her shallow draft, shes perfect for sailing here around the New Jersey shore. It is also quite capable of coastal cruising which we often do when our work schedules permit.
As much as we love her, we have decided to move up to a bit larger yacht that will allow more extensive cruising in our upcoming retirement years.
Thanks for looking! Please feel free to contact us with any questions...
