Time for COWBOY to be sold, the most recent price reduction has lowered the price to $899,000. The owner died last year and his family is not using the boat. Powered with a single Cummins N 14 440 HP engine and with a fuel capacity of 5,500 gallons this steel trawler is a long range cruiser. Two 17 kw Onan generators and a recent 2014 FULL PAINT JOB.
The boat is listed with another broker in my office but please contact me, Tucker Fallon, 954-801-3645. Walk Through
Boarding via the amidships gate, the solid build of COWBOY is instantly felt: waist high gunwales with stainless steel handrails on the main deck and a Portuguese bridge forward. The bow sports a single serious plow anchor with a vertical foot-operated capstan.
The Aft Deck is laid out with bench seating and a large table. A portside ladder leads to the boat deck and there is a hatch that provides entry to the engine room. A stairway to starboard steps down to the fishing cockpit that was added after the build, making this original 68 footer a 74’ fishing trawler. The cockpit is outfitted with four fighting chairs, helm station, rod holders, bait freezer, bait well, cutting table and electric Jenn-Air grill.
The Main Salon is entered from the aft deck. A large U-shaped settee to starboard is upholstered in a caramel leather that complements the maple paneling, giving an inviting warmth. A custom topped table with a sportfish motif fronts the settee. To port are two dark brown chairs further adding to the warm ambiance, and a drop-down TV lies above the granite breakfast bar that serves as the division between salon and galley. Storage cabinetry abounds in both the salon and galley.
From the galley to starboard is a door to the exterior as well as stairways leading below deck and to the pilothouse.
The pilothouse is raised a few steps above the main deck. There are doors port and starboard to the Portuguese deck and a stairway to the boat deck and flybridge. Roomy with excellent visibility, the pilothouse is outfitted with full navigational equipment for deep-water voyages. Storage areas abound and there is ample seating with a helm chair for two and a large raised settee.
Electronics are repeated at the helm on the Flybridge. There is an abundance of storage on the flybridge: under the console, in port and starboard cabinets, as well as below the built-in U-shaped settee. A 22’ Twin Vee CAT tender is cradled on the boat deck and is raised and lowered with a davit. The tender is powered with two Suzuki 60 hp outboards.
COWBOY’s accommodations consist of three double cabins and two heads. The VIP cabin is forward with a double berth, drawer storage and hanging lockers. The Guest Cabin is just aft to port and has a double berth and twin Pullman berths. The VIP and guest cabin share a head with shower located portside. Aft of the head is an office complete with built-in desk.
The Master Suite is full-beam amidships. There is a centerline king berth, a built-in chest of drawers to port, night stands, a dressing table to starboard and four sets of hanging lockers. An en suite head with Jacuzzi tub is to starboard.
A utility room with laundry is entered from the master and a water-tight door amidships accesses the engine room from the utility room.
2014 - Complete new paint job
Just some insight on the brokerage industry:
Brokers do not "share" listings. They work hard to get their listings and split their commission when another broker comes in with their own buyer. I've never encountered a brokerage where the brokers are allowed to market the other broker's boats. Perhaps Tucker's situation is unique and it is allowed or encouraged? This is why I posed the question originally.
Co-central listings are more common on larger boats with two brokers from different offices promoting a boat. I have a co-central listing now on a 2013 68' Hampton Endurance asking $2.6 million that is also listed by the Hampton dealer. There is a 2012 75' Riva here at the shipyard now asking $2.9 million that is another co-central with another brokerage company.
Back in the days prior to wide internet exposure brokers would advertise listings of larger yachts in magazines, that were listed by another brokerage company, with permission only.
Cowboy, the 74' Cape Horn, is a central listing of another broker in my office. We work together to show boats and sell each others listings. I show boats to his clients when he is not available and he does the same for me. He gave me permission to advertise his listing on Trawler Forum as this boat might appeal to readers here. The widow of the owner has told him it is time for this boat to get sold, it will be a good deal for the right buyer. It is an estate sale so someone may get a better deal.
Yes that does. I'm very glad to hear the authority has been granted. We are a self policing industry and it is incumbent on brokers to be involved in making sure everyone is playing by the same rules. Tucker and I are well aware of the need to continue to improve our industries standards and policies.
Bayview, The entire listing is on Yacht World with many more pictures and more specifics like engine the hours around 4200. Of course the listing broker, Whit Kirtland, is on the YachtWorld information but buyers should contact me, with Whit's approval of course.
The asking price has been reduced again. This estate sale asking price has been lowered to $849,000. Now is the time to make an offer.
Florida has a program for non resident buyers where you pay no sales tax and you can keep the boat in Florida for 180 days. The first day of fall may be just around the corner but we will have boating weather all year.
Despite claims to the contrary, I find it difficult to understand how internal arrangements negotiated between the staff of one brokerage office are the business of another brokerage office.
As long as full disclosure is presented, it should work. All parties have the same interest, get the vessel sold. Both Tucker and Mark are straight shooters in an industry that has its share of problems. Good brokers are worth the price.
