“Top Coat” represents the perfect opportunity for someone that would like to get into a rather large and elegant traditional cockpit motoryacht.  Recently brought down from the Great Lakes to the Chesapeake Bay on her own bottom, the yacht is ready to cruise!  Alternatively, she would make the perfect liveaboard: She has two twin bed staterooms, a very large master with centerline queen. and a crew’s quarters with bunk forward.  She has a tremendous main deck salon, and an elegant lower salon which doubles as a dining room.  She also boasts an upper aft deck and a beautiful cockpit with varnished teak, as well as a very large flybridge.  The boat is PERFECT for entertaining large groups, and would make the ideal “dinner cruise” boat if someone was interested in such an endeavor.  Equally, she is ready for coastal cruising and/or simply living aboard!

Powered by Detroit Diesel 550hp 8V-71s, she cruises an easy 12 knots at 1600 RPMs, burning @12 gallons/hour. She has two (2) diesel genrators, a bow thruster, pilothouse and flybridge helm stations, clean and well-organized engine room, and Garmin electronics.  She truly is ready to explore.  Located in Little Creek Inlet near the Norfolk Airport, she is easy to see!  Call to set up a viewing.  Truly a beautiful yacht!
