DESIDERATA II is s stunning " Downeast" cruiser designed by Spencer Lincoln with both an aft cockpit and aft cabin, offering the best of both worlds - two separate cabins and heads, safe walk-around decks, and easy boarding from swim platform and transom door through the aft cabin. DESIDERATA II is powered with a single 735 hp diesel which was completely rebuilt in 2013 by one of the best mechanical departments in New England, Billing's Diesel & Marine.

The previous owner purchased her in 2001, and has performed many improvements and upgrades since then, including a complete Awlgripping of hull, deck and superstructure.
