Reluctantly listed due to an opportunity for the owner to get into a cabin class twin. Not a project plane or a beat up trainer; everything works and all squawks have been properly addressed under current ownership. Over $150k in overhaul and upgrade expenses in past 2 years; would take well over asking price and a year of downtime to replicate this aircraft. Full glass panel traveling machine that will run 175KTAS at 17000' on 14.5gph combined or 190KTAS on about 19gph. Current owner is an active MEI who can provide delivery and/or transition training anywhere in the US.

Note: due to unfortunate experience a written sales contract (AOPA or otherwise, at buyer's discretion) will be required prior to the seller undergoing expenses.
