Sea Squire has been at her home dock on the Cape, spent some of the off-seasons in a heated shed, occasionally spent winters in Florida, and mostly used for day outings.  She is in superb condition, beautifully equipped, and serviced rigorously.  Among Sea Squire’s options are:

  • Extended Cummins engines warranty to May, 2024.
  • Hydraulic swim platform
  • Scissor berth in guest stateroom
  • Teak decking on swim platform
  • Teak decking in the cockpit
  • Crew quarters with head in lieu of standard utility room
  • Side by side washer and dryer
  • Dockmate remote control added in 2021
  • Engine, generator and house batteries replaced in 2021
  • Sure Shade
  • Onan 13.5kW Generator
  • (3) Zone Standard Reverse cycle air and heat

…and more.

While the owner has thoroughly enjoyed Sea Squire, he has decided to move to a smaller boat.  If unsold Sea Squire will be coming north to the Cape in the spring.

Vessel Walk-Thru

Enter into the cockpit through the portside transom door from the large hydraulic swim platform.  To starboard is a generous L-settee and aft facing bench seat, both covered in blue Sunbrella, a beautiful oval cocktail table, and all are protected from the afternoon sun by a telescoping Sureshade.  The teak cockpit sole continues onto the swim platform.


The double port side door into the salon and the electrically actuated aft window open the main salon very nicely from the salon to the cockpit and outdoor activity, creating a lovely flow for family and guests.
