Affordable waterfront living at Shilshole Bay Marina in Ballard! Live aboard the immaculately maintained "Leschi" and enjoy spectacular views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. "Leschi" is moored in a hard to find live aboard slip at one of the largest marinas in the PNW.
This Ocean Alexander 40' has an open dining and living area with a raised food bar, mounted TV and a fold-out couch that converts into another berth. The spacious galley has more than enough cupboards and drawers for storage as well as a large fridge/freezer and a 4 burner stove/oven with an exhaust hood. "Leschi" offers a large, spacious stateroom up front with a mounted heater to keep you warm and an additional single cabin just before it with room for more storage. She also includes a forward head with an updated sink, new Masterflush toilet, and full shower with half tub.
For lounging outdoors, there is room for chairs and a table on the back deck that gives a breathtaking landscape when puttering through the San Juans! On the second level you will find a fully enclosed flybridge that affords unsurpassed views even while at the dock as a second living area space - perfect for happy hour or your morning coffee! As for the automated features, "Leschi" has low mileage on her twin Ford Lehman engines with updated electrical and mechanical systems -- which include Garmin and Raytheon electronics.
No moorage? No problem! The seller is offering a one year sublease in the existing slip at Shilshole Bay Marina! Laundry and additional bathroom facilities are conveniently located at the top of the dock. Enjoy the privacy, peace and quiet of waterfront living for a fraction of the price! "Leschi" is moored just a short walk to Golden Gardens Beach Park and all that Ballard has to offer. OR, set off the dock and explore the wonders of the Salish Sea aboard this turn-key 40'.
After being surveyed in 2013, the seller spent over $20k addressing all identified needs and customization of the living quarters. "Leschi" is ready to go with plenty of years still left in her for cruising and adventuring around the Pacific Northwest! Schedule an appointment today to see this roomy, well kept trawler.
