1986 Marine Trader Sundeck 36

I am planning to list my boat soon. I have a gob of pictures on my profile albums page, scenic and technical of the boat.

Engine is a American Diesel Corporation (Lehman) 136N with 5000 hours. Single screw fully protected keel.
Boat is mechanically in good shape, with some cosmetic punch list items I am currently working on.

I checked Yachtworld and 3 make/model sister-ships are going for $89K, $65K, and $60K. Mine is closest in condition/shape to $65K. But I will first offer privately for $55K, prior to a full-spruce-up.

Technical:
6.5KW Genset serviced 2015.
AC New in 2010
Bottom paint 2015
Engine serviced 2015.
Simrad Radar 24M
Autopilot
Garmin 740s GPS with depth.
Huminbird depth.
Windlass to be replaced.
Full keel
8 6V batteries.
2 close-door cabins
2 heads with showers
Solar panels for battery charging.
150 gallon water capacity
300 gallon fuel capacity
25 gallon waste capacity.

Needs as of today:
deck paint refresh.
door varnish refresh.
hull wax.

PM me if seriously interested.

Thanks!

Hello,
I realize I am late to the party... but can't help but ask if she is still available? Exactly what we want!
Thanks, Linda

We love our boat. But we've gone from a cruising area (Oriental NC) to a zooming area (Wilmington NC) and have the next kid approaching college, so we'll take a trawler break and get a skiff if convenient. Still, nothing like tinkering on the boat with a beer as she is 3 miles from my house.

Who knows, Mr. B might spam/sell you a boat!

A brief update. This week I am completing major engine work to the boat and thus the engine has been taken apart and rebuilt. I've not yet run her as reassembly is going on now, but will advise once complete.

Ben, is your boat still on the market? If so, can you give details about the major engine work? I'm new to the forum and actively shopping for a boat like yours, thank.
