Arcadia is a 1972 38’ Egg Harbor Sport Fisherman. She has a fiberglass hull with a wood top deck, similar to many boats of that generation. Her owners are a military family who has been transferred to Florida and are offering a unique opportunity to the right individual(s). Her current owners purchased her in 2010 from a famous German artist from Manhattan that enjoyed her for years at the dock while she rest idle since he had no prior boating experience.
The previous owner invested a lot of money into having a large section of the bow deck cut out and replaced, as well as having the fly bridge rebuilt with divinycell to avoid any future issues with the wood. Since the current owners have had her they have continued to replace portions of the wood top deck. They have had custom fabricated mahogany top cap built to be installed on the gunwale which is waiting in the cabin for finish installationRead more: Arcadia
