Crystal was built in steel and aluminium by Deep Sea Marine to a design by Jack Sarin and delivered in 1987 with refits in 1993, 1998, 2001 and 2006 and has flexible accommodation for 12 guests in six staterooms and seven crew in four cabins. Guest accommodation is laid out as a master suite, two doubles and three twins and all staterooms have en suite bathroom facilities..
Crystal has excellent fishing, diving and cruising capabilities and a 4,500 nautical mile range while offering a luxuriously comfortable interior. She has been a favourite of many captains and crew on the US West and East coasts. Neil Esterly says she will be having a refit soon and will remain based in California.
Twin 825hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots.
Crystal was asking $1,495,000.
