1988 Wellcraft San Remo 43

Ruskin, Florida


Every once in a while I run into a rare older gem and this is one. This boat is clean, reasonably equipped for cruising or living aboard and is in a very interesting price range. Where can you find a decent cruising/live aboard with diesel engines at this lower a price.

If you are thinking of enjoying the local "beer can island or a short trip across the stream to the Bahamas or an awesome base to call home, this is a great boat to consider.
