1999 Little Harbor WhisperJet Flybridge Cruiser

Marco Island, Florida


"SHEER LUCK" is a Little Harbor WhisperJet 55 Flybridge Cruiser!

She has a modern Deep V hull form with a twin chine configuration that minimizes waterline beam for performance and fuel economy and maximizes interior volume for accommodations. She also features Hinckley’s JoyStick controls for ease of docking and a recent electronics upgrade. The main engines are surrounded by a carefully engineered, sound-proof, compartment which makes the raised salon a comfortable and quiet place while underway, even at high speeds. Ted Hood took the traditional “Downeast” look and added waterjet power to create high performance in a classic, two stateroom cruising yacht.

"SHEER LUCK" is a great live aboard or extended cruiser that sports a draft of just 2’6” that allows for shallow gunkholing in the Bahamas or Florida Keys. Seller is a two boat owner and is ready to sell this great getaway vessel. Seller is open to trades as well (real estate, items of Interest or possibly vehicle trades).


COMPLETE MARINE is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by United Yacht Sales - Florida SE Coast.
