Barefoot V is a pedigree 78’ Burger that has been meticulously cared for by all of her previous owners. She was also the featured boat at the prestigious Ocean Reef Vintage Weekend Event.

As you walk aboard her new Tideride ladder and enter from either Port or Starboard side door you will see the polished sill plate that says “BRECK GIRL” as she was previously owned by the Breck Family.

Barefoot V came down to Florida in 2021 with her new owner after spending the last 12 years on the Great Lakes. During the winter months she was stored out of the water in a heated building. 

She is a flush-deck motor yacht with a full beam salon and an aft deck large enough for alfresco dining for six. Forward of the salon is an all mahogany finished pilothouse with all new soft goods, followed by the port‐side on‐deck (galley up) very large custom galley with an oversized settee and starboard‐side day‐head.

The Main Salon has a generous amount of space to include 3 separate seating areas as well as a large mahogany entertainment center to surround a 65” Samsung TV. Also in the main salon is the large wet bar on the starboard side aft with refrigeration and ice maker.

The curved staircase from the salon leads down to the guest staterooms that includes a full beam master stateroom with an ensuite head and two twin guest staterooms with shared head.

The crew area has sleeping quarters for three, forward of the pilothouse.

Barefoot V has been tastefully updated over the years, from soft goods to appliances, All new navigation, electronics and more. Most recently her Flag Blue hull sides were repainted along with new hull bottom paint and zincs. Non-skid and bright work was also part of her updates. All her  machinery has been serviced, repaired and or replaced as necessary. A new Bimini-top and isinglass was also just replaced on her large flybridge. A new aft deck sunshade was installed in 2022 and new forward covers for the seating area.

Barefoot V was originally built as a 72’ Motor Yacht and had cockpit extension done by Rybovich/Spencer in 1995 when the bow thruster was also added.

If you are looking for a true Yachtsman style boat that has been refit with modern conveniences, look no further.
