Very cool opportunity to own a jig built Buddy Davis with a recent repower and major refit. From late ’21 into ’22 Full Circle underwent a major overhaul back home in Wanchese and she turned out really nice. With 300 hrs on new CATs, extended warranty, beautiful interior carpentry, new topside paint, hardtop, riggers, curtains, electronics, Optimus steering and a very long list of other additions and upgrades, Full Circle is definitely worth considering if you are in the market for a boat in this class. Come check her out.
