********* FORTIER 33.5 LOCATED IN WICKFORD RI ***********

This is the only Fortier 33.5 built with a flybridge with twin diesel engines,

and a fully laid out interior.

For the past 20 years PICNIC has been meticulously taken care of by her current owner. He has paid six figures during his ownership in upgrades, and careful stewardship of this standout Fortier 33.5. Boat has mostly been stored indoors during the winter for the past 20 years, while in season providing excellent cruising comfort, including a trip from Florida to Rhode Island.

If you are looking for a first class picnic boat, PICNIC is worth your consideration. Unlike most Fortier 33's on the market, this one has so many advantages. Recently upgraded TWIN Yanmar diesel engines (only 700 hours), covered flybridge, Yanmar 6kw generator  (only 50 hours), 16,000 BTU A/C, new electronics, Awlgrip San Mateo Wheat color in excellent condition, recent brightwork, aft deck Bimini, radar.

She shows VERY WELL!

She is currently housed in a shed for protection, and some photos were taken with flashlight for lighting. These will be updated if she goes back outside.

Picnic is a 1984 classic boat in beautiful condition. Owner drove from FL to RI recently and reported that it was a great experience and the boat ran great. He says it is a fantastic cruising boat - easily at 20 knots and fuel efficient, providing 2 miles to the gallon up to 15 knots, and no less than 1 to 1 above that.

Built by Rod Fortier; one of the premier boat builders in New England.  Fortier has been building semi-custom boats for over two decades.  The Eldridge/McGinnis designed hull is proven for its sea keeping ability with a molded-in keel and spray rails offering exceptional stability and giving the boat a soft, dry entry into the water.  The hull and decks are foam-cored with Core-Cell making it the stiffest and strongest in its class without adding unnecessary weight.

Also included:

Electronic control system for fly by wire technology,

Two station redundancy electronic controls

Privacy screens

Galley down configuration
