Lucky Bag 2 is an exceptional example of this popular model. Bought in 1999 by a knowledgeable yachtsman he immediately had a major overhaul performed on both engines and has since put approx. 900 hrs. on them. He also removed the stock galley and built a custom galley comparable to what you might find on a much larger vessel complete with sub zero refrigeration and separate sub zero freezer and Corian Countertops.  Also had a custom setee installed  in 2019 port side in the salon w/ storage under, Maintaining Lucky Bag 2 is the owner's hobby and his pride of ownership is apparent throughout the vessel. She has been used strictly  for cruising by her current owner who is not a fisherman.
