Owners Comments

Last Tango has served us well. We have lived on her continuously for the last 4 years. She is a beautiful blue water boat and she’s taken us from Florida, through the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the Spanish Virgins, the US Virgins, and the BVI’s, and just about every island in between the BVI’s and Trinidad. She’s built for blue water cruising, and she handles the sea quite well. She’s turnkey and ready to take the new owners on their next adventure.

Registration

Last Tango has a USA registration and there are no known outstanding encumbrances.
