The SLICE OF LIFE inventory features an ONAN 8 kW diesel generator, reverse-cycle heat & air conditioning and electric heating throughout. Her SUNBRELLA Flybridge Bimini canvas, complete with a full Enclosure, is in excellent shape. The interior is certainly clean and the yacht "shows well". Equipped with a CETREK Autopilot and, upgraded in 2015, she also has RAYMARINE RD424D Radar, A12 GPS / Chartplotter and a R60 VHF, the SLICE OF LIFE electronics are certainly complete as well as up-to-date.
The SLICE OF LIFE has been located in fresh water up on the Connecticut River for many years with her previous Owners and she has benefited from that environment. Her "no teak decks" are a real "plus" as built and the yacht's White exterior gelcoat is easy to maintain. As her Owners plans have changed for the 2018 Season, she's offered for brokerage sale and is just now in the process of being commissioned. Appointments for viewings are to be encouraged as the SLICE OF LIFE will not disappoint.
