2006 Molokai Strait 75' Expedition

Fort Lauderdale, Florida


M/V Hercules, built in the US, is a true passagemaker capable of safely crossing oceans. Her original owners built the Molokai series to offer a steel alternative to their very successful line of Outer Reef Yachts. With little time to use the yacht, the vessel was donated to a reputable donation company. The current, 2nd owner, had Hercules updated, upgraded, and refit after a thorough Steve D'Antonio survey and stability testing by Blount & Assoc. With an open checkbook philosophy, the owner is offering the purchase of Hercules in excellent condition due to his purchase of a much larger expedition yacht. Additionally, Hercules offers the opportunity of a lease purchase which means the monthly payments to the donation company are assumable. Ready to go expedition yacht with built-in financing. Does it get any better?!


Majesty Yachts USA is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by JW Yachts.
