"Niche" is the prize of the Seguin 40' line.  She has been beautifully maintained.  This is a great boat for weekend trips and long cruising. Recently launched and sailed to Newport in route for Charleston, SC for the winter.  The boat is looking stunning and everything on board in working perfectly.  The owner took the recent survey and addressed every minor issue that was noted and there were only minor issues.
