Use buttons below to view more information about OSPREY II.
"Osprey II" (ex INTOLERANCE) has proven to be as comfortable and sea worthy as they come. Lyman-Morse built many Hunt designs over the years and this vessel is a great example why. She has the perfect balance between performnace and asthetics. When you add to that the condition she has been kept in Osprey II lands herself in the top class of flybridge crusiers available today. Seeing how the market is moving and the recent price reduction only verifies how excellent the offering of the is custom yacht is.

Construction of the yacht was started in 1995. She was commissioned in the spring of 1996.
On her fourth owner who purchased the yacht in 2008 (2nd owner only had the boat briefly and was unable to use her). During the winter of 99/2000 the yacht underwent a refit. During that time electronics were updated, a generator and air conditioning were added and the yacht was lengthend by two feet. The double transom door was added and recently a new teak swim platform. All earlier work was carried out by Little Harbor (now Hinckley) yacht yard in Portsmouth, RI. The yacht has always been maintained without regard to cost and has always been stored inside in the off season, she has never gone south. OSPREY II will appeal to those who are serious yachtsmen and especially to those who appreciate the pedigree of builder Lyman-Morse and designer C. Raymond Hunt Assoc. and wish to have a distinctive vs. production yacht. She is offered for sale at less than 1/5 of her replacement cost.
