1986 Marine Trader Sundeck 36. ADC 5000h
I'm planning on selling my boat. We moved to Wilmington NC and it is clearly not trawler waters here (mostly Carolina Skiffs and Sea Rays - zoom, zoom!), and we are not using it as much as we are maintaining our overpriced house (another story).
I have just had it hauled to fix an issue and paint the bottom. Engine is a single ADC (Lehman) 136N with a little over 5000 hours. It sips fuel and I bought it because it does not eat a hole in the fuel budget. In the picture, it shows full curtains, but I replaced with a new bimini only in 2013. Similar boats (Marine Trader 36 Sundeck 84-90 vintage) listing for $65K, but I need a bit of cosmetic shining and a new windlass. I am currently having maintenance done on engine and other mechanicals. Depending on work done and current market, I will set my price somewhere below $65K. The similar boats are a little more spiffy than mine - so I am gauging how far beneath $65K to go.
My plan is to move it to New Bern early August. Before I go broker, I am pretty flexible. After that, the broker will obviously require their cut and price accordingly. Though flexible, I can be insulted. Over this week, I will post more pics. Once the boatyard work is done, I will be in a position to move/show. In no hurry today, but in a month I will be gearing up in earnest for selling.
PM me if seriously interested.
