About this Glacier Bay 3470


The Glacier Bay 3470 is a versatile power cat designed for extended cruising, offshore fishing, and diving expeditions. Carpe Ahora is well-equipped to handle various climates, thanks to its hardtop, windshield, soft enclosure, and A/C in the cockpit.

The boat is highly stable, making it ideal for offshore fishing or anchoring in your favorite spot. Additionally, the large aft swim platform between the outboards allows for easy access to the water, as well as the ability to load a small inflatable during transits.

Carpe Ahora has been professionally managed here in Tortola and benefits from many upgrades and on going preventative maintenance. ....She shows exceptional well!

  • The exterior deck gelcoated surfaces are in excellent condition with only very minor gelcoat crazing and stress cracking
