The list of these 4788s sold west of I-5 is too high to print here.

Her owner took her off the market in mid February 2020,

370 hp Cummins Diamond Series with 1271 hours. A 12.5kw generator. All maintenance and engine service is up to date by Cummins dealer.



Yesterday she ran five hours at 2500 rpm, and her transom was totally clean afterwards. This vessel is NOT over propped, which is a problem that plagues the vessels with the 330 hp Cummins. There IS a difference between the engines, it’s not just the CPU code settings and injectors. I have a link on my site to THE engine expert.

Recent work and updates:

Bottom paint 2018
Major servicing of both vacuflush toilets 2017 ($1500)
Ice maker replaced 2018 ($$)
Hydraulic rudder ram pumps replaced 2016
Microwave replaced 2015

NEW Salon AC 2012

Engines serviced every year by Authorized Cummins dealer. I have work orders going back since new. This is a one owner boat.

Ship hauled every year and shrink wrapped for the winter. Always. Boat has spent its entire life in the Northeast with western Long Island being its primary cruising area. Detailed every Spring and washed every 2 weeks.

I also have in storage the original barrel chairs that came with the boat.

NEW 10’ Avon inflatable with 10hp Tohatsu outboard engine -2018


10’ Avon Inflatable-10hp Tohatsu ob. 2018




Clean transom after running five hours at 2400 rpm.


The bolsters need to be recovered. This is a very simple matter of unbolting them and taking them to an auto upholstery shop. I would though recommend replacing the plywood with Starboard.


This is the only corrosion found on the aluminum in the cockpit. Anybody who knows these boats, know this is normal and extremely MINOR vs what is usually seen.




The 2001 4788’s and the 2005 Meridian 490’s are the most popular model years due to the light colored countertops.






Original electronics that all work. Before you go insane thinking of updating them, just know that you can now do most everything with a laptop or a Smart Phone.


minor corrosion on the pilothouse door.


Engine and Generator hour meters. I see 1247


The electrical Panel


just three steps to the flybridge, just three steps down to the salon. Port and Starboard doors make it so easy to handle these boats by yourself


I’m promised the davit swivels very easily.


The Bridge Entertainment Center option. Just a refrigerator and a sink with storage beneath, but also a great place to park a BBQ grill.

Lets go down below decks shall we.


Hallway to the staterooms and the heads. Yes, there’s minor bubbling of the wallpaper, which isn’t unusual at all. Remember this is the ORIGINAL owner. It’s easily fixed by injecting glue via a hypodermic needle and smoothing out with a credit card. Easy peezy


VIP stateroom


No matter how many times I upload photos of the master stateroom and the master head, no matter how many times I edit them-they keep loading sideways. I’ll be happy to email them to you. Or you can go see it on Yachtworld.
