1998 Santa Cruz 52

San Diego, California


52' Santa Cruz 52 '98 "Hokahey"

Santa Cruz 52s are absolutely the best cruiser/racers. The perfect blend of generous cockpit, generous accommodations and excellent sailing ability. HOKAHEY has been lightly used over the years and recently updated. The current owner very much enjoys the boat and his only reason for selling is he lives too far from the coast. This is THE best buy Santa Cruz 52 on the market.
