1974 Formosa 51

Marina del Rey, United States


This boat is  a 1974 Formosa 51 Ketch, Aft Cockpit that was owned for many years by a local Marina del Rey mechanic that put his heart and sole into her.  It has had many upgrades in the last few years including an LP painted hull, newer sails, new canvas, fresh decks and a custom stainless steel hard top over the cockpit.  She stands out and is looking for a new owner.

The Marina del Rey slip is transferable and could be a liveaboard, with approval from the Marina

Exclusion include personal items and fishing poles and tackle.
