1998 32 Active Thunder 32 CC “Ms. Rita”. RESTORED WORK of ART owner’s longtime friend’s beloved 1998 / 2022 Active Thunder 32 CC “Ms. Rita”. The owner and his friend became friends many years ago. Back in the day the owner and his friend could often be found enjoying themselves out on the water at the next poker run or just island hopping from local hotspot to local hotspot. Time passed and the owner and his friend didn’t spend as much time as they used to island hopping. In 2020 his friend became ill and knew the time had come to depart with his pride and joy a 1998 Active Thunder 32 CC “Ms. Rita” that he and so many of his friends had great memories aboard. Knowing he wanted the legacy of “MS. Rita” to live on, he sold it to his great friend, the current owner. The current owner and his friend spent many summers days cruising around the panhandle in style but now was the chance for the current owner to honor his friend by bringing this beauty back to her glory days. The current owner has put over a years’ time honoring his friend and bringing “Ms. Rita” back to life now cruising the panhandle in style once again.

The current owner has spared no expense when restoring this 1998 Active Thunder 32 CC “Ms. Rita”. Repowered with the Ideal Mercury 300 XL Verado’s with electronic DTS controls “Ms. Rita” is sure to throw you back in your seat when you punch the throttles. All new SIMRAD electronics suite, new Fusion MS-RA210 head unit, new upholstery, head truing hull graphics, and complete electrical re-wire throughout. Also included is a 1998 Tow Master Aluminum I-Beam tandem axel trailer.
