Brokers Remarks

“La Pituca” was originally intended by her original owner and constructed by West-Bay SonShip Yachts to be self-sufficient, capable of extended cruising to faraway places and self-sustainable upon arrival. This yacht’s systems and equipment were selected for reliability and dependability. Examples of this are theSeries 60 Detroit Diesel, in-line 6 cylinder, 4-stroke main engines,dual generators,fuel polishing system,stabilizers,watermakerandtender davit, windlass and bow thruster (all hydraulically driven).

The low maintenance exteriors of the West-Bay SonShip Yachts when coupled with the hull’s shallow draft, exceptional performance and economy of operation have combined to create a yacht which has proven highly successful whether cruising the Bahamas, Florida Keys or the San Juan Islands of Puget Sound in the Pacific NW.

“La Pituca” represents an excellent value and opportunity to own a well-equipped but relatively lightly used West-Bay SonShip Yacht. Easily inspected and seriously for sale in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
