RUSTY SU is a beautifully and exceptionally well maintained Trumpy houseboat that has enjoyed consistent and thoughtful upgrading during her present owners 37 years of ownership. Featuring one of John Trumpy’s most desired accommodation plans, she offers three owners and guest staterooms aft and separate crew accommodation (presently used as a 4th guest stateroom) forward, plus a modern and updated galley on the main deck.In good order throughout and very well recommended by her broker, RUSTY SU is well suited for immediate use as a family, live aboard, or charter yacht. Of worthy additional note and further testament to how she has been maintained: RUSTY SU has received twelve awards with six of them being “BEST OF SHOW” at the Mystic Seaport Antique & Classic Boat Show.
