Recently launched for summer 2019, I was excited to finally get aboard to get a full tour of “Summer Time”, including the opportunity to take photos. I was absolutely stunned by how beautifully the owners prepped the boat; everything neat and tidy with the entire boat tastefully decorated cozy nautical style (please see photos). Jim and Judy have owned the boat since new and they have kept her looking as nice as the day they first got her. After taking dockside photos, Jim started gathering up the lines and when I offered to take over he casually motioned to the helm, “No, I’d like you to take her out”.
After showing me the starting procedure, off he went to tend to the docklines. The wind was blowing at about ten knots from the port side, more or less pinning us to the dock. Next thing I knew, he was aboard and gave me the go ahead. I’d never used a bow thruster before but with a simple flick of my finger, the bow eased off of the dock and I held the thruster in until our bow was out far enough to give clearance on a docked boat just off our bow. All I had to do then was push the single lever throttle/shifter into forward and Summer Time eased ahead forward and with a turn of the wheel, our stern cleared the dock and we were off.
Summer Time is one of the cleanest, best equipped boats that I've ever had the privilege to market and represent. She is in impeccable condition inside and out and offers fantastic features and accommodations that are perfect for safe, comfortable, short handed cruising.
