A truly great example of when an owner lavishes on his boat, his pride and joy, "Guardian" is that boat. As a 2004 model, she belies her age. You can see care and money spent, everywhere you look (read through the listing and see all the new equipment), and it's all recent.
Well laid out and thought out, this boat can do intercoastal cruising or make livaboard status, equally well. You should run her though!
The bulletproof 8.3 450hp Cummins have low hours, every cooler and associated hoses replaced, and are both economical, yet powerful enough to push the 48 Islander well over 20 knots.
