1984 Midnight Lace Rumrunner Express
Boat Type: Motor Yacht Address: Oxford, MD, US Price: $79,995


Venturer, is a substantially original Tom Fexas-designed express cruiser, in the Rumrunner, 3 cabin configuration, with galley up, center master suite and forward v-berth with passageway to the iconic forward cockpit for which the Lace is famous. Her helm sits high with full visibility over the bow. This express configuration does not have a flying bridge, but still this layout historically has been called a DCFB. The Lace is light and fast with twin turbocharged Detroit diesels. She cruises comfortably at 18 knots. She turns heads wherever she goes and is known by many from her many magazine covers over the decades. She is one notable part of yachting history. Fexas built 21 of these 44 footers at the Cheoy Lee yard in the late 70s and early 80s. Kept under cover for much of her life. No expense has been spared to keep her looking and running and working flawlessly.
