PRICE REDUCED TO $199,000 on 9/6/2019A very nice Twin MTU 1,000HP Powered 53 Ocean Super Sport that has been continually updated and upgraded by caring owners who have owned her for the past 10 years.In the past 2 weeks she was hauled and was freshly Bottom painted, Oil/Filters changed, waxed, new zincs,prop speed and new underwater lights were installed and recently the entire topsides were painted.She shows really well inside and out and appears to be a much newer boat. NOTE: Hard to get Slip on floating dock at popular Harbortown Marina in Fort Pierce may be available to new owners at prevailing rateOwners have no time to use her any longer and are moving on into a smaller boat.REMARKS: Clean lines, spectacular 3 stateroom(2 Queen staterooms) 2 Head interior layout with the Master located down to port,a spacious salon with galley up featuring a full size built in refrigerator, large well laid out flybridge with plenty of seating the 53 SS offers about as much well laid out, fast boat one can get in a convertible in the size and class range.Replacing the popular 55 Super Sport in 1991, the 53 Super Sport was built on an all-new Ocean hull design with a sharper entry and slightly increased transom deadrise. The hull changes make the Ocean 53 a generally better headsea boat than her predecessor with a notably drier ride. Several floorplans were offered over the years, and while three-stateroom layouts have been the most popular, a two-stateroom, galley-down version with a dinette delivers an extremely spacious salon. Although the deckhouse dimensions are slightly smaller than the 55 Super Sport model she replaced, there’s plenty of room for entertaining, and the luxurious furnishings and teak woodwork create a very inviting atmosphere. A transom door was standard in the cockpit, and the fish box was re-positioned for improved access to the rudder posts. Additional features include a factory hardtop, a well-arranged engine room, and cockpit controls. Note the absence of the exterior teak trim seen in most previous Ocean models.
