Tour/Video

Solid, spacious steel cruising ketch in excellent condition. ONLY 300 hours on new 55hp Volvo engine! Professionally built to the design of American designer J. Murray Watts, "Nekton" has been in the same family for over 30 years and has been conscientiously maintained throughout their ownership. She offers the luxury of a pilothouse layout with the galley centrally located between cockpit and saloon and an open interior with a generous master cabin.

With a new diesel already installed and priced to allow upgrades of electronics and sails, "Nekton" offers a whole lot of boat for cruising and would make a perfect, roomy liveaboard vessel.
