Quest is very sturdy, safe , very clean and well equipped.

This is the best Bristol 41.1 on the market as I have viewed each and every available 41.1 for sale in the United States.

She can be sailed and viewed in Scituate MA Harbor.

Whomever buys Quest will have a solid investment an outstanding value.Please call Captain Kathy at 617-529-8021 or email for pictures – more info to
