2006 Offshore Yachts Pilothouse

Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina



Whileaway checks all the boxes for an Offshore 54 Raised Pilothouse. She is the preferred two stairwell version providing owner privacy in the evening. The under-counter Isotherm fridge/freezers create great visibility forward and aft giving the boat a very open feel. The C 12 Cats, twin generator package, watermaker and stabilizers all were great upgrades to the 54 Offshore. This vessel is turnkey and ready to cruise.


Gulf Coast Yacht Group Orange Beach, AL is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Luke Brown Yachts - Ft. Lauderdale.
