    Hi Bill, Welcome Aboard! I have been studying the market for used yachts in general and Midnight Lace 44-52’ more specifically. I will be headed down to Florida after Hurricane Season. Perhaps, you would have time for lunch one day?
    Best, Jack

    The Midnight Lace SIRENA sold last month, and is now based in Stuart. I have seen her go by the Jupiter Island Club Dock the last few days looking great. Judging by the listing, and based on a friend’s report in her former home port, she is the best currently afloat, and well worth the $ 150,000 selling price. Congratulations to the new owner.

    Thank you. Does anyone have any info on Weather Girl Too? Later design 52’ located in Sarasota.

    Interesting design, I don’t generally like the looks of the newer boats because they lost the 4 to 1 length to beam ratio, as the 52s went from a 13 ft beam to 16. WEATHER GIRL does have a nice low profile despite her larger girth.

    Did Cheoy Lee also build this later design?

    That extra beam may not look as sleek, but sure would give a lot more interior room.

    But, but, those Cat 3196's are enough to scare most people away. Last time I talked to a Cat guy they were on about their 7th revision to the intercoolers for the 31 series. Run Forrest Run.

    I agree that you would get more room in the wide beam version, but then, why buy a Lace? It is somewhat like buying an underpowered early 70s sports car with SS stickers to make you think it is fast.

    Did you buy her, and did I see you today near Jupiter?

    I haven't seen anyone post here in a while. I hope interest in Midnight Laces hasn't wained. I have a Buyer who is interested in a nice clean 44 or 52 Lace. Anyone know of one that is not on Yachtworld?

    Thanks, Bill

    I'm looking to price out shipping from Seattle to Florida for a 52' Midnight Lace. Anyone know what the total height is from the keel up to the top of the flybridge. Transport companies want to see 13' or under.

    Thanks, Bill

    The one in Seattle has not worked out. And I still have a Buyer ready to buy a 52' Midnight Lace. Anyone have a line on one that the Owner is ready to sell?

    Many thanks, Bill Watson, United Yacht Sales, Stuart, Florida
