What are your impressions of the boat? Build quality & condition?

Also, could you tell me about getting to Powell River? From your earlier comment I think Mapquest is lying to me. If I head up to look at it I will be traveling from Pasco Washington.

Thanks

We own a 1981 Ennos Sapphire 32, which discontinued production shortly after 1981. As Northern Spy said, it looks nothing like the vessel under discussion, excluding the hull. I didn't sign up to look closely at the photos (have done so before and regretted the ensuing bombardment) but it does look to have the same hull, which is well built.

Ours has a 165 HP Volvo and it would be a lie if I said it could reach over 12 knots, so 70 HP wouldn't come close.

(Ours is for sale if anyone is interested!)

Thanks Conrad,

Yours is a good looking boat from the pic. What is your asking price?

As to the "Ennos" on eBay: Looking at the pics and poking around for information I got the idea that someone had taken an older Ennos and done and extensive reconstruction. I contacted the seller and asked. He told me that the hull & structure are all 2012 manufacture.

I expect the hull speed is a bit less than 7.5kts and you could push it at 7kts on ROUGHLY 1.5gph. I would guess that 70hp would land you closer to 8.5kts and 3.5gph (assuming 17000# displacement). A little out of my area of knowledge so take my numbers with a "grain of salt".

Our Ennos is currently listed with CR boat Brokerage in Campbell River and the list is $45K although realistically we will look at all offers.

Ours is happy at 7.5 knots and 10 litres/hour. Manufacturer's quoted displacement: 11,600 pounds.

Do you know of airlines that fly from Seattle or Bellingham to Campbell River?

Thanks

I have never flown a seaplane before. I have been looking for an excuse. Thanks for the info. Looks like they have daily flights from Kenmore to Campbell River.

Float planes are fun, just a little extra drag. I think Conrad's boat would be a better choice and the advice given on surveys....no matter what always do a hull and engine survey.

Well, that one is odd looking, but if we're talking boxy superstructures, here's one of the most extreme I've seen. Yikes, talk about windage:

Houseboat 38' Two Story in Melbourne FL | eBay

Even sitting at a dock with the engines off I'd be afraid of rolling over in a light breeze.

Yeah, but that one's a houseboat. The first one's a trawler!

Steve, a couple of years ago I expressed interest in the boat as well. The gentlemen that ran one of the fuel docks was very helpful when we visited Powell River. Anyhow, he suggested I contact a very dependable source I had experience with while visiting the wonderful community of Powell River. I did so and without hesitation he/she said RUN!!! The trawler has been for sale off and on for a couple of years. I suspect you can do a lot better with your money. Just my two cents. Good luck in your search.

When I was very young, my cousin built a boat. That one reminds me of it. Not a houseboat, not sure what you would have called it. Looked like just a big box. My cousin and a few other relatives decided to take it to the coast and try it out. I said "no way. It will flip before the day is over."

Needless to say as they get ready to round the point and head out of the inlet, over it goes. Fortunately for them they landed very close to a sandbar, pulled the boat on shore, got a ride to retrieve their trailer and got a wrecker to come help pull the boat far enough to load on the trailer. Lucky no one was hurt as an uncle was under the boat for a bit and swam out. They bring it back and before I even get close, I ask "how long before it flipped?"

That homemade houseboat is just as scary.

Are you sure it has an engine?

Steve, I was watching football and recalled there was a youtube video on the trawler you are inquiring about. Not sure it helps but here is the link.

For some reason Firefox always throws a danger warning when I surf to a Craigslist page in Canada.
