Overview

Mi Amore is an exceptionally well-kept aft cockpit CT 42 Mermaid ketch. The current owner has meticulously cared for the boat and has countless documentation, inspections, etc. for the boat over the years. All of the deck/interior woodwork is pristine and the fiberglass hull is structurally flawless.  The boat was kept in freshwater until 2013 in Michigan. Mi Amore also has a recently rebuilt 2014 Yanmar 4JH-DTE with only 76 hours of use. Mi Amore is currently docked on the Housatonic River in Stratford, Connecticut just 3 minutes off of exit 31 on I-95.
