Location of Vessel

Fort Pierce, Florida United States



A very nice Twin MTU 1,000HP
Powered 53 Ocean Super Sport that has been continually updated and
upgraded by caring owners who have owned her for the past 10 years.

In the past 2 weeks she was
hauled and was freshly Bottom painted, Oil/Filters changed, waxed, new
zincs,prop speed and new underwater lights were installed and recently
the entire topsides were painted.

She shows really well inside and out and appears to be a much newer boat. 

NOTE: Hard to get Slip on
floating dock at popular Harbortown Marina in Fort Pierce may be
available to new owners at prevailing rate

Owners have no time to use her any longer and are moving on into a smaller boat.


Clean lines, spectacular 3
stateroom(2 Queen staterooms) 2 Head interior layout with the Master
located down to port,a spacious salon with galley up featuring a full
size built in refrigerator, large well laid out flybridge with plenty of
seating the 53 SS offers about as much well laid out, fast boat one can
get in a convertible in the size and class range.

Replacing the popular 55 Super
Sport in 1991, the 53 Super Sport was built on an all-new Ocean hull
design with a sharper entry and slightly increased transom deadrise. The
hull changes make the Ocean 53 a generally better headsea boat than her
predecessor with a notably drier ride. Several floorplans were offered
over the years, and while three-stateroom layouts have been the most
popular, a two-stateroom, galley-down version with a dinette delivers an
extremely spacious salon. Although the deckhouse dimensions are
slightly smaller than the 55 Super Sport model she replaced, there’s
plenty of room for entertaining, and the luxurious furnishings and teak
woodwork create a very inviting atmosphere. A transom door was standard
in the cockpit, and the fish box was re-positioned for improved access
to the rudder posts. Additional features include a factory hardtop, a
well-arranged engine room, and cockpit controls. Note the absence of the
exterior teak trim seen in most previous Ocean models.
