40' Admiral's Launch in Oceanside, CA

For Sale is an Ex-Navy 40' Admiral's Launch

I have been reading the forum for months and had been hoping to join as an owner in my own right but.......

Purchased the Launch last spring to truck her to Bellingham and finish the interior over the summer with the help of my 'boat expert' son. I forgot about his wife and let's just say it wasn't going to happen.

The launch was purchased directly from the Navy by her former owner (retired Navy) and trucked to the boat yard where he had been working on her cabin until diabetes forced him to sell. The engine is a single screw DD671. I know anyone interested will have lots of questions so can refer you to original owner or arrange for you to see the boat where she is stored in Oceanside. Cal Western was going to truck it for me for ~3k so I can reduce price if you're thinking of the same.
I paid $9500 but as mentioned above will reduce. (Since I have never used the forum any tips on how to advertise and sell greatly appreciated)

You have nice pictures, a description of what is going on, and a starting price. Sounds to me as if you did just fine. People will ask more questions as they arise. Sounds like a fine TLC project for someone.

Boy, for the right person, this could be quite a deal. I definitely see the vision that you saw when you bought it. That boat all gussied up would be stunning!!!

More of them in better shape should be along soon. My son is on a carrier and says the Admiral never boats he flies in a Helicopter.

Since money was no problem all the USN boats are well built with FR - Fire Retarding resin.

Only a penny or two a pound more than std hi burn std resin , but new boat owners never ask , they just look at the woodwork.

Looks like one of the Uniflite boats, if so it is bullet proof!, with some of the best hardware you will ever see.
