PRELIMINARY LISTING - ADD'L DETAILS AND PHOTOS TO COMEThe 1995 65' Johnson Motoryacht HAPPY DAYS represents an incredible value for her next owner. The two previous owners have spent in excess of $300,000 in upgrades and improvements over the course of the last several years, and as she sits, she's a turn-key, beautifully outfitted 4 Stateroom, 3-head (plus crew quarters) boat. With a generous 19' beam, spacious open salon, full beam master plus 3 guest staterooms in a split floorpan, HAPPY DAYS is the perfect platform for coastal cruising or heading out and exploring the Keys and Bahamas or beyond. With her spacious interior and numerous amenities, she would shine as a long-term liveaboard as well. With an impressive cruising speed of 26 knots, that means you can get up and run when you want to put the weather behind you, or just want to cover some ground. Of course you can pull it back and enjoy a nice, economical 10 knot cruise, too.The current captain has been with the boat for nearly 10 years and has performed or ensured quality work during all projects under his supervision.
