Guys ,
If I was living in the USA I would be all over that boat like a cheap suit.
If the hull is in A1 condition it's a beauty.

I know little to nothing about wood boats, that is a real beauty. If I was in the PNW instead of here in FL, I'd be looking.

Well, my sale fell through last week when a few issues were found during the survey. There was some soft wood found, so I have lowered the price and put it back on the market for $98,000, a reduction of $67,000. I am looking for a buyer with the necessary wood working skills to make the necessary repairs. It is listed on Yacht World, so if your interested there is a brief explanation of what needs to be repaired there, and many more pictures of the boat. Thanks for your interest.

What a shame. She is one of the most handsome boats on TF. I hope you, and the boat, find the right buyer.

These 4 cylinder diesels are running between 1400-1500 rpm at a cruise speed of 7-8 knots. I have never been able to figure out the fuel burn exactly, but I estimate at less than 5 gallons per hour total.

Ouch, 19 litres thats a bit more than I would have thought.
I have been looking at 50-60ft boats over here in Australia that claim to use around the 8 -10lph or 2.6 gallons for an 8 knot cruise.

Thanks for the reply.
