Found The Boat, Pulled The Trigger!

Well, after a two year hiatus and patient searching, we found the boat. Closing on Monday. Here she is... https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/198...ck-fb-3566788/

Not sure why she was on the market as long as she was. The pics don't do the boat justice. Worst thing we found on survey was a mis-connected generator wire. The engine room is as clean and organized as the pics show. No delam or no soft decks anywhere and I paid nowhere near asking price. I'll upgrade the electronics when I get her back to Myrtle Beach. Feels good to be back in the saddle!

Well layed out! Great detail in the mechanical areas. Love the room around the single Ford. Lack of exterior wood a great plus! Your squirrel hunting has found a real chestnut.
as a result of your post, I am adding this model to my mental "Next Boat" dream catolog

Sweet! Nice and clean. We bought our 2013 Beneteau ST 35 up in Deltaville and brought her down to Murrells Inlet back in Aug. Where will you be keeping her?

You have a perfect boat for Pacific Northwest, coastal BC and Alaska Panhandle cruising. The hard top over the cockpit is perfect to keep our rains at bay.

Most of the systems on the boat are new, like the anchoring system. The chain hasn't even been wet yet.

She's coming down to Osprey Marina in Myrtle Beach. Hope to get her here in January.


I do have a question about the engine. It's a Lehman 135. Are there different versions of this engine?

Congrats! I may have found a vessel that meets our needs. But I am struggling with making an offer as it has been 15 years since I've bought or sold a boat. I am trying to educate myself on today's market. You say you did not pay near the asking price. Can you help me out by telling me what percentage off the asking price you received?

Thanks!

That is a nice looking boat and it sounds like you got it at a good price. You will learn to love that N.A. F.L. The boat looks very well appointed and accessorized.

Im not real familiar with Marine Traders but those windows on the port side look like replacements. Or are they stock? I like the metal framing, mine are wood and are problematic.

Hi Hammer, I sent you a PM. Take a look and shoot me a call...

Hey Pete, both starboard and port side windows have all been replaced! I couldn't find any active leaks around any of the existing windows. It looks like there was a small leak around one salon window in the past. Just enough to discolor the wood. The laminate itself is still very sound in that area. The only water damage was found in the master stateroom. It was under the port sliding window. An area about a foot and a half long. The yard was in the process of repairing that area. The owner said he spent two summers on the engine room restoration. I believe him.

A single diesel (modest hp), no thruster, restricted aft deck access, and a LOT of windage will be challenging to handle and dock - I bet that factored into the price. It can be done with experience and preparation but this is not a preferred setup for learning or if mobility challenged.

Nah, none of that factored into the price. I had no preference over a single or twins as long as they were maintained. If it had a thruster, great, if not that was ok too. The only hard and fast was it had to be a sundeck per the wife. I based the offer on condition and what I thought the boat was worth to me.

“Not sure why she was on the market as long as she was.”

I was explaining why - that boat is going to be a challenge to maneuver. I say that as some who has owned and cruised single engine trawlers for almost 40 years.

You must have great skills - good luck with your new purchase.
