Cruising The Sandra Faye

It has been a great boat for us. We used it on Lake Superior since early summer of 2017 and have made many upgrades.

Whether you want to go out on the water for a day, a weekend, a month or a live aboard for a year or more, this could be the boat for you!

The central hallway.

It leads from the dining area to the master bedroom, past the kitchen, guest room and guest bath.

Above is the kitchen with double sinks, electric range with oven and a new microwave.

The kitchen also has a full sized refrigerator/freezer. It is one of the major things that make this such a good live aboard boat.
