RARE OFFERING!! A successful combination of pleasing lines, sturdy construction, comfort and performance as well as an affordable price established the Nova as one of the best buys in the small motoryacht market during the late 1980's. She still maintains that same reputation today. As a result these boats are rare in the used trawler market.

Powered by dependable Perkins diesels, and equipped with a generator, air conditioning as well as all the other creature comforts this boat is ideally suited for the Great Loop or just comfortable cruising.

Owned by a very knowledgeable marine professional couple for the last 10 years the "Roustabout" has been docked in fresh water and received excellent care.

The owner has just taken oil samples before changing all the fluids.  

The owners are changing their boating life style and this nice Nova 40 is seriously for sale presenting a terrific buying opportunity.
