    *Price updated 9 May 2022

    Sad to say but personal reasons have left me looking to sell First Command (formerly Phat). My wife and I are about to buy a house, and our free time over the past two seasons has not allowed us to enjoy her properly. I can tell you that since 2016 I have cared for this boat and would like to find someone to carry on loving and sailing her. Over the past 5 years I have made a few major updates and upgrades listed below. I am looking for a reasonable price, around 19,500 obo. She is on the hard at Herrington Harbour North (C-W-1), picture attached of marina map. Please let me know if you want to take a look or need more pictures. I also have a 1999 walker bay 8 ft hard dinghy available as a bonus item if desired.
