Condition Upgraded as things needed replacing seems to of been the modus operandi for this seller. When the A/C needed attention around a year ago, it was replaced with a larger model to make sure the Florida heat wasn't an issue.
When the anchor didn't grab on the first try, the rope was replaced with chain, yes all 200' is now chain, good thing she's got a windlass! Stereo not sounding just right, replaced it with a better system! Seats on the deck looking old, reupholster the deck seating.
And again, these are fresh water closed cooling system engines.
As you can see, she has been taken care of.
Recent dripless shaft and seal service.
Bottom paint is approx 2 years old, boat is dived regularly.
The front center isinglass panel is cloudy.
Did I mention reman engines! Low hours!
Beginning of recent survey, surveyor noticed rudder shaft stuffing boxes dripping and survey was cancelled by the buyer. This was not previously noticed by owner and was a non-issue for him. Boat is fully functional and operable. Due to the location of the stuffing boxes, the surveyor indicated the engines and the generator must be pulled to repack the shaft seals since there is no access to tighten the rudder shaft seals. Based on the surveyor's assessment, a rough estimate of $3,500-4,000 was provided by a major service provider for the scope of work recommended by the surveyor. Actual cost could be higher or lower. Seller is moving on with his life and the boat is fire sale priced at $38,000 firm, as is. Survey and mechanical inspections are welcome upon accepted offer, but price is firm and boat is being sold "as is". Boat must be moved out of marina upon closing. No work other than inspections will be allowed at current location.
