VAMOS A VER can be considered to be one of the finest cockpit motoryachts of her size and vintage on the West Coast. A low hour boat, she has been well outfitted and maintained, and has gone through extensive upgrading in 2022/2023. A superb seakeeping yacht, she has recently returned from a successful winter cruising season in Mexico and the Sea of Cortez.
With her large, functional cockpit, spacious deck areas, and ease of movement throughout the vessel, she can be considered extremely versatile - perfect for an active family, or well-suited to entertaining afloat. She has numerous areas to gather guests for meals or cocktails together, or for one to sneak off to to find a quiet spot for some alone time.
Should water sports or fishing be of interest, the ease in which either can be accommodated from the cockpit really makes this yacht stand apart from others in her size.
Owned by only her second owners, VAMOS A VER can be considered ready to go - coastal cruising or entertaining aboard by her next owners. Awaiting her next owner, she is conveniently located just minutes from San Diego or Tijuana airports.
VAMOS A VER has gone through systematic and consistent upgrades since changing hands in 2021, taking an already well-maintained yacht and making her even better. Among the recent upgrades, which have been performed in 2021, 2022, 2023 are the following:
