The boat I'm looking at is a local listing, but it is the same year and model as the North South listing.

The one I'm looking at is not through a brokerage. It seems to come with better accessories. i.e. full enclosure, extra batteries, etc... It also appears that the couple who owns the boat never did much sailing and used it more like a cottage on the water.
