1995 Little Harbor Express 40

Marion, Massachusetts, United States



"Limulus" was carefully built with customized specifications and details.  Her custom Anegre interior gives her a very light airy feeling.  With new re-powered 420 HP Caterpillar engines in 2015 with only 10 hours on them.  These propeller drive engines provide speeds up to 30 knots.  She has been lightly used, constantly upgraded and meticulously maintained.  She is a must see!
