Since Sweet Caroline has been stored in fresh water for the past 16 years and as such, she has stopped aging. The interior & exterior entertaining spaces are much larger than one would expect from a 60’ and with the addition of bridge and aft deck air conditioning she is comfortable all year long. The seller has gotten older and can no longer enjoy the as he used to.
