Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife,Kay,and I are from Iowa and enjoyed a Career in Real Estate and land development. WE were very proud to be the #ONE REAL ESTATE TEAM in the QUAD CITY AREA . Our Real Estate careers were PERSONALLY very rewarding. My MAJOR hobby in Iowa was restoring Antique Wooden Boats for 30+ years. Since moving to Florida, I have renewed my love as an AVID scuba diver, which I began while serving as a Marine for 3 tours during the Viet Nam War.

Why the Owner Chose Other Fort Lauderdale Properties:
My wife and I feel that this is an opportunity to do something different. A 'fantasy', of sorts. The location is special, The restaurants are great and the Marina Bar advertises the BEST Happy Hour in town. There are 80+ yachts over 80 feet long in our Marina and their owners chose to be there, why? Because it's PARADISE.

The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
You will be close to everything Fort Lauderdale has to offer, OR , you can just stay put and have everything you want or need. Sunsets aboard 'SWEET DREAMS' are as romantic as the famous 'Key West' sunsets. Of course I may be a bit biased!!!.
