2002 LITTLE HARBOR 38 WhisperJet

2002 LITTLE HARBOR 38 WhisperJet  For Sale
$259,000 | Sarasota Florida, United States

Luxury, water-jet powered yacht, designed by Ted Hood and built by Hinckley after their acquisition of Little Harbor, this 2002 38' WhisperJet, "Gone Blue" was meticulously crafted with the most advanced materials, numerous factory upgrades, and is powered by twin Yanmar diesels with Hamilton waterjets and joystick docking.  Quality is evident in her finishes and materials.  Luxuriously upholstered seating both aft and on the bridgedeck accommodate guests in any weather condition.  The V-berth and open layout below deck with convertible dinette allows options for any cruising or weekend on the water with the family.  With excellent helm visibility, she exhibits precision control while running. The Hinckley JetStick control provides ultimate maneuverability and docking capabilities.  

A single-owner vessel, this Little Harbor WhisperJet 38, "Gone Blue," is a versatile yacht.  Her maneuverability and shallow draft make her an excellent, luxurious day boat. She is also large enough and outfitted appropriately for a couple to cruise on her. When she is not in use, she can be safely stored away on a 24,000 pound lift, closed up and covered, so her owners don't have to worry about her. New electronics and access to Hinckley 24/7 Service make this a turnkey yacht.

Economical cruising speed of 25 knots @3000 RPMs, burning .99 nm/gallon.
