Cruisers Yachts – 54 Cantius

Florida, United States

 With only 310 hours on her optional larger HP Volvos (925 HP), “ADDI J” stands out from her sisterships. Not only do the larger engines give more speed, but they will be more economical if one chooses to travel at the cruise speed of the lesser HP engines.

Until Nov 2022, “ADDI J” lived on a freshwater lake undercover in a covered slip in Texas. Since then, she has been on Florida’s West Coast. Placed for sale by an owner retiring from this size vessel. “ADDI J” is a very nicely outfitted 54 Cantius that is most seriously for sale.
