1987 Midnight Lace Flybridge
Boat Type: Cruiser Address: Chester, MD, US Price: $148,500


From: The Powerboat Guide - The Midnight Lace 44 is the boat that put Tom Fexas on the map. The prototype was built in Stuart Florida and introduced at the Ft Lauderdale Boat Show in 1978 - Where she literally stole the show. Based on the elegant commuter style boats of the 1920's, The Midnight Lace 44 is a completely modern blend of lightweight cored construction and a highly efficient "penetrating" hull form. She featrures and very narrow beam with a fine entry, flared bow and tightly rounded bilges. The Midnight Lace's were built by Hong Kong's Golden Wave Shipyard and were offered with a choice of floorplans with a single or two stateroom layout. The unique forward cockpit is accessed from the forward stateroom.
