Brokers Comments

La Belle Vie is one of the nicest MT 40 sundecks you'll find. She's ready to cruise and has the specifications you want to cruise the intercoastal waterways, Carribean or Great Loop. Her bridge clearance can be reduced to 15.5' from usual 18' for a Great Loop cruise.

Consider how much you'll save in predictable future maintenance and fuel costs by selecting this Marine Trader with a single American Diesel engine with less than 250 hours.
