The SLICE OF LIFE is a very well-kept Vista 38 Sun Deck Trawler. Produced by Kha Shing Shipbuilding of Taiwan, she's a 1990 model and was built in 1989. Equipped with economical & reliable FORD LEHMAN 225 HP Turbo diesels, she'll give a solid 9 to 10-knot cruise and more if your in a hurry. By the way, the fuel burn rate is only 4.5 USG per hour at cruise! Combined with her light & bright interior and comfortable (2) Stateroom layout, the SLICE OF LIFE is a very attractive proposition for those who have their hearts set on some extended cruising! 

The SLICE OF LIFE inventory features an ONAN 8 kW diesel generator, reverse-cycle heat & air conditioning and electric heating throughout. Her SUNBRELLA Flybridge Bimini canvas, complete with a full Enclosure, is in excellent shape. The interior is certainly clean and  the yacht "shows well". Equipped with a CETREK Autopilot and, upgraded in 2015, she also has RAYMARINE RD424D Radar, A12 GPS / Chartplotter and a R60 VHF, the SLICE OF LIFE electronics are certainly complete as well as up-to-date. 

The SLICE OF LIFE has been located in fresh water up on the Connecticut River for many years with her previous Owners and she has benefited from that environment. Her "no teak decks" are a real "plus" as built and the yacht's White exterior gelcoat is easy to maintain. As her Owners plans have changed for the 2018 Season, she's offered for brokerage sale and is just now in the process of being commissioned. Appointments for viewings are to be encouraged as the SLICE OF LIFE will not disappoint.
