1985 Atlantic Cat
Yacht price :
GERALDINE is a twenty-four foot Atlantic Cat Boat by Mark-O Custom Boat. Built in 1985 in Sea Bright, NJ, she is in a class of boats that are popular and known to be well built and nicely finished. All of the canvases, cushions and dodger have been recently replaced and are in beautiful condition, just waiting to be enjoyed on a summertime excursion! The cabin offers space and coziness rarely found on a sail boat of this size, with ceilings at 6’2” the feel is open and airy, able to sleep six.
A very rare offering with the current owner spending over $20,000 recently on a small refit at the Hodgdon Yard in Boothbay Harbor, Maine; records of work done are available upon request. GERALDINE offers ease of handling with just one sail, and she has a wide beam for stability and comfortable accommodations usually found in a larger vessel. Presently equipped for near coastal navigation, GERALDINE’s woodwork has been well maintained over the years as is evident by her attractive exterior trim and interior painted surfaces.
