1986 Monk 42 For Sale

I've just begun to market my Monk 42 trawler. It's in terrific condition with over $50,000 in upgrades and improvements over the past few years. Check out the details here:


https://www.boatdealers.ca/boats-for...an-bay-ontario.


Keep in mind that due to the horrendous exchange rate between the Cdn and the US Dollar, Americans certainly have the advantage when buying a Canadian boat.


Also consider that this is a Georgian Bay, Ontario fresh-water boat. Comments are always welcome. Thanks.

I've been advised that my asking price was a little high and have adjusted it downward. It's now priced exactly as evaluated by a highly experienced and qualified marine surveyor last year.

Greetings,
Mr. RW. I always like to see ER pictures. Thanks. I might add, a fresh water boat can usually command a somewhat higher price.

Thanks RT. And I've been told the same thing that fresh water boats usually get a premium. If you hear of anyone interested, let me know. RW

By the way, the engine room looks good; quite clean. At the next opportunity, I'll snap a couple of shots for posting. Thanks for the tip.

Nice ride! I am not in the market as we continue to Monk 38 but am interested to know what Davit System is depicted in the photograph. I removed the crane and am looking to carry the tender aft. We carry a 10' Walter Bay with a 15HP Yamaha.

Davit System

It's an electrically powered Sea Weed Tend'r Roller. I was unaware Monk built a 38 foot - just a 36 and 42. Where was it built? Taiwan or Nova Scotia?

She was built in Taiwan by TaiChao in 1978. My avatar is the original Monk Model 2 drawing. She is the sedan model. Been in the family for 20 years. We just went through a full refit including new windows, glass decks and awlgrip along with many upgrades and refreshes. She is good to go for another 40 years.

Nice vessel. Before we bought Blue Sky I looked hard at a Monk 36 and found the saloon area a bit small. This looks to have addressed that. Timing is everything I guess.

I hear you. However, my decision to price my boat as I did was based upon an appraisers opinion of value. And his opinion was based upon the craft's excellent condition, the relatively low engine hours, the fact that she's been a fresh-water boat all her life, and of course, supply and demand. I've found no other fresh-water Monk 42's for sale in Ontario or the eastern USA. Have you?

I've added a few engine-room photos to the ad https://www.boatdealers.ca/boats-for...an-bay-ontario

Let it be known to the naysayers that the first guy to come view my 1986 Monk 42, for which I was asking $180,000 Cdn, paid me $175,000. He saw the value and appreciated the top condition of my vessel. That's about $135,000 USD for my American friends. Anyway, she's sold. Fortunately, he's slipless for a couple of weeks. Thus I get to enjoy her for a bit longer. I also offered to captain her down the Trent-Severn Waterway with him to her new home in Mississauga. That'll be a bitter-sweet finale.

Congrats, Ross. That didn't take too long at all. Seems like it was pretty fair deal all around.
