IT’S TOO is simply one of the nicest, cleanest, and best upgraded Talaria 29 Runabouts listed in recent years.  Over the past four years, with the help of multiple Hinckley yards and one talented local yard, her owner upgraded and improved nearly every facet from the most visible cosmetics to the most hidden systems. 

Hull paint, cushions, teak decks and covers are flawless.  Varnish is excellent.  Her engine has a recent 1,000-hour service, new paint, and many new components and accessories, in addition to a fully serviced waterjet with new wear ring, reconditioned impeller, and reversing ram. The full list is as extensive and complete as possible, and included at the end of the listing.
