Yacht price :



IRISH WAKE has not only been on an excellent maintenance program, but she has also been extensively upgraded. For maintenance, the CAT 1000-hour service was completed this spring (she doesn’t have 1000 hours yet), and she’s been stored indoors, out of the elements. For upgrades, in 2014 all new Furuno electronics, AIS, and sonar were installed. The exterior enclosure is new in 2015, and she has teak decking on the swim platform and coamings. Call to view this pristine CABO 40 Express.
