This is an exceptionally clean and well maintained Bayliner “Classic 2858”, a one-owner boat, and she shows it!
PRICE REDUCED 10/25 by $7,000 !
“Tinker Toy” would be a fun boat for a small family or a couple who want to ‘gunkhole’ out in the Islands. Sleeps six in her vee berth, convertible dinette and ‘mid-ship’ berth (great for kids!). She has had very little use – there are less than 300 hours on her Merc. 7.4 – and she’s been kept in ‘near new’ condition. In fact, the original plastic protective coverings are still in place on the dinette seat cushions …
Among the most stylish, and certainly the most popular designs ever built by legendary Searay Boats. The 350 Sundancer has an enormous amount of interior space, feels sturdy and safe on open waters, and cruises comfortably to 18 kts. with a top speed nearly double that.
This is a “one owner” boat. She’s been cared for exceptionally well, and she shows beautifully! The routine maintenance has always been timely and fully addressed. The interior was completed redone recently using only top-of-the-line fabrics throughout; very unique and classy.
First introduced in 1971, this unusual “Laguna” design built by Grand Banks is one of just seventy-one boats in the 11.5 meter length. The replacement model was the Eastbay design built in the mid-nineties. She was re-powered in 1998 with twin turbo Cummins 6BTA, each 330 HP. These replacements have less than 500 hours on them and both gearboxes have been rebuilt as well.
Layout: Swim platform with transom steps and a waist-high transom rail for safety while fishing from the spacious aft cockpit, aft deck with live bait tank and ice hold for the catch. Small drawers and storage for fishing gear, stainless and teak ladder to covered flybridge helm and access to lazarette and storage space below the aft deck.
This outstanding ChrisCraft is built on the design of the Unilfite “Yacht Fisherman” hull which is well known for being rugged and very seaworthy.
When ChrisCraft acquired the hull molds in 1984, they also modified the interior design to create more livable space, and incorporated an island queen berth in both of the staterooms forward and aft.
This 48′ model (52′ with pulpit and swim platform) was later designated as a “480 Catalina” in the 1987 model from ChrisCraft.
This boat would be great for a small family or for a novice sailor who wants a relatively simple boat with a proven reputation at a modest investment.
The 30′ Newport Model 30-1 is the forerunner of the very popular MK II series, and is now in the class of a “classic plastic” sloop from 1967.
The interior fabrics have been recently recovered, there’s lots of good storage, a LPG stove and chemical waste treatment system. Forward double berth, full quarter berth and a starboard side settee single.
30′ Searay Weekender model 300 built in 1989. Strong running twin MerCruisers 5.7 260 hp with Velvet Drive gearboxes, shaft drive and 3.5 Kw generator.
Would make a great fishing boat or a dive platform with her large aft deck and oversized after-market aluminum swim/dive platform.
There is a double berth forward with privacy curtain and the dining settee converts to a double as well.
Head and shower, galley with fridge, 110v and alcohol stove and microwave. Nearly new separate canvas bimini, aft deck enclosure and a full aft deck covers.
Clarke Ryder, renowned builder of classic sailing boats, wrote about this 39′ Southern Cross:
“In 1980, to confirm theories as to how ancient mariners managed long sea journeys before sophisticated instruments were developed, Explorer Marvin Creamer commissioned our Bristol shop to build “NavStar”, a special factory finished Southern Cross 39. The 39 was designed by US Naval Academy marine architect Thomas Gillmer. Tom had designed the Seawind Ketch, the first fiberglass sailboat to sail around the world. Marvin successfully completed his historic trans-Atlantic voyage with no navigational instruments, just a thumb and a forefinger. (One would think that if you headed east from Newport you would eventually bump into something, but maybe it’s more complicated than that.) Marvin bumped into West Africa, confirming his theory. After completing this voyage, Navstar was upgraded with modern navigation equipment and many other conveniences.
A fun day sailer or overnighter that’s easy to sail for the novice or an experienced captain!
Very well maintained, very clean and well equipped. Bring your friends and bring your groceries – everything else is already on the boat.
Two cylinder Volvo diesel inboard, sails are in good condition. Large cockpit area with tiller steering and all lines led aft for easy handling. Traditional interior layout with a large companionway and engine access behind the ladder. Two settees with a folding dinette table and an aft quarter berth. Head with a door to separate the forward cabin, hanging locker and forward vee berth.
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!
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.
