The 42′ Grand Banks trawler is a true “Classic”, the standard for all other designs that followed.
This “Salish Trader” is in excellent condition. She was very well maintained by her former owner over twenty years and spent all of those years under cover in cold, fresh water. She has only 1,650 hours on her twin Lehmans and also has an Onan 7.5kw genset.
The interior finishes are excellent and the cabinetry is first-rate. She shows very little wear to her interior which was thoroughly deep-cleaned again last month. The ample dining settee was recently in a plush off-white and all of the bunk mattresses have been recently recovered in a pleasant plum fabric. The white vinyl flybridge cushion set is in very fine shape.
A great bargain on this very popular fishing machine – we want to see her gone soon!
The boat has just had a full inspection and service on her triple Yamaha 250’s by a certified Yamaha mechanic.
New batteries, new trim tab cable, new ignition and all systems checked out by the pros.
She is in terrific shape; the hull was recently polished, canopy is in excellent condition, outboard skegs show no sign of excess wear, upgrade electronics, cushions are in good condition, and she’s fully ready to go for the upcoming season.
A classic fiberglass sportfish from the renowned boat builder from New York’s upstate Finger Lakes region. This 30′ model has a vee berth, large dinette that drops for a double berth, galley with new stove and refrigerator and a head with shower.
A great boat for a small family, or for weekend spent fishing. Her massive aft deck – nearly one hundred square feet – affords ample room for sunning, or trolling and landing those salmon this summer.
Less than 500 hours on re-powered twin Volvo AQ-271’s with DPX dual prop outdrives that were recently serviced and reinstalled. The boat was hauled for bottom paint and hull survey in November and “Slow Ride” is ready to go — fast!
Beautiful interior is well lit and in excellent condition. The galley has good storage, a microwave, stove and refrigerator. Private aft cabin double berth and the forward vee berth can both be curtained off from the main salon.
The Monaco design has a large open cockpit area with seating for six or more, very good access to engines and a molded swim platform and transom door. She has a new full canvas enclosure for the cockpit area.
Do one job. Do it well.
Legendary North Carolina builder Sunny Briggs tells me he built this boat custom for Peter Pulitzer in 1984. Now, you do know who we’re talking about, right?…
So, after you get done impressing your buddies with stories of her lineage – you and “Shotgun” can take them out fishing. One job, done well.
From her sleek looks, to her simple and clean interior, to her top quality machinery – this boat is built for just one purpose.
When you’re ready to go, give us a call.
Imagine the looks you’ll get in this one! She’s a 1954 Swedish Storebro Solö Ruff, Express Cruiser. All mahogany hull and interior with seamed fir decks. There may not be more more than a dozen of these classic boats in the US.
She was imported and completely reconditioned in 2003 including a new Volvo diesel. This lovely boat is a true collector’s item.
The Mirage originally had a 305 two-barrel carburetor that produced 225 hp.
The rebuilt engine is a 360 hp late-model 350, with Vortec heads and a dual duration cam, new Edelbrock intake and Jet Stage 2 Quadrajet carb. It’s not built to be ‘over the top’ and doesn’t have a rough sounding idle.
The engine has less than 20 hours on it:
1 hour with Royal Purple break-in oil, 30wt
5 hours of intermediate run time between 1,500- 3,000 rpm
3 hours of run time 1,500 -3,500 rpm
1 hour of 1,500- 4,500 rpm
She’s in great condition, had recent complete refinishing inside and out in 2007-08 and shows very well. A ‘gentleman’s project’ for many years, her former owners took great pride in this boat.
The Ford six-cylinder diesel is paired with a Universal Velvet-drive gearbox. Her 3/08 survey while on the hard states “no deterioration or soft wood was discovered and the running gear was in good condition.”
Don’t miss out on this beautiful classic Grand Banks!
With “one of the largest fishing platforms to be found in a flybridge boat this size” (Powerboat Guide), the 144 square foot aft deck is designed with one thing in mind…let’s go fishing! Her September 2010 survey reads; “This 1988 Viking 48’ convertible is a very well designed and very well built fishing machine with cruising comfort. The interior craftsmanship has been very, very well maintained. The market value of the vessel is enhanced by her upgrades and electronics. With the continued care and maintenance she will give her owners many more years of pleasure.”
A great family boat for sail and cruise or weekend getaway! Her last survey (8/07) found all mechanical and electrical systems fully operational and well maintained. Sleeps two in forward berth, two in salon convertible dinette and additional in starboard quarter berth. Clean, well maintained and well cared for by owner.
Available with special owner terms.
