29' wharram catamaran - $39500 (Marco River Marina)

I have seen the exterior of this boat and can say that it is in very good shape. I believe that this would be a great value for someone. It would be a little under rigged for my preference but that is just me. Shae is a very nice Tanenui. I will be in Marco Island this week and will try and get some interior photos. This is a very nice Wharram at a very good price. You can barely see the rig of one of my Tiki 8ms in the background.

29' wharram catamaran 2years old. 9.9yamaha ob. schooner rig w/ spinnaker
head w/ holding tank. garmin 4208 chartplotter/fishfinder. 4berths. radio
