Mainship 34 Mk1 1978 $12,000 (SOLD)

Previously listed for sale at $20k I have reduced the price. Getting out of boating due to health issues. I need to sell.
I have a 1978 Mk1 34 with re-engined Perkins Turbo (1985). Bow thruster, full canvas. Currently on land near Annapolis, MD. For the last year I have not been able to use the boat often due to illness and I need to sell it. It's mechanically good, cruised last in Nov. 2013, it needs TLC.
I am asking $12,000.

Mainship 34 Mk1 Trawler , built by Silverton / Mainship 1978
Westerbeke Marine generator engine 3 cylinder diesel 5kw
Extended Flybridge
Re-engined in 1985 with more powerful Perkins marine diesel T6.354.4 240 Hp turbo
Has original inside layout
Full size V-berth with single bunk above
Queen size sleeper sofa
Electric Bow thruster
Spare Prop
Basic electronics, VHF, GPS Chart, etc.
Custom, full flybridge enclose and canvas, plus matching weather cloth
Swim platform
New electric flush toilet
Pressurized water system
Full standing / seated shower
Dual power marine refrigerator
Dual cycle electric air conditioner / heater
Basic engine / generator service spare parts, filters , etc.
Dripless shaft seal on prop shaft
Pilot position on flybridge and inside salon console
Twin 6 volt golf cart batteries for house / backup start
12 volt marine batteries for generator starting and bow thruster
Battery switch / combiner
Upgraded alternator on main engine.
Shore power battery charger for all batteries
Electric stove / oven. Microwave.

I believe the boat is very usable with minor repairs and maintenance. A few things need immediate attention, such as the generator water pump. Others are optional, but I noted them as I had them on my punch list.

TLC needed and other notes:
Generator needs water pump seal
Two areas of “soft deck” one on port front of flybridge, another on starboard foredeck about 2/3rds forward.
Bilge pumps / float switches should be checked / replaced. Parts are on boat but not installed.
Engine heat exchanger core needs to be flushed.
Needs bottom and prop cleaned and bottom paint re-applied
Toilet does not flush properly because there is a blockage in the PVC pipe from toilet to holding tank.
Anchor rode is aging and should be checked /replaced soon

Selling as is.

That's one nice looking paint job on that Mainship. The top looks very clean as well. I'd think this would be a good buy at your asking price.

Might want to have the little things tended to so you can remove them from the ad, head being clogged is a big downer on an ad.

Well yes, you are correct , its always nice to have things fixed and if I were healthy I would fix everything, but its priced in currently and if I fix things the price will go up.

Greetings,
Mr. DMD. Boat aside, I wish you a healthy recovery. Lots of other boats out there if you ever decide to take up the sport again. Keep well.

Thanks for the thoughts, the docs are working on it. Not life threatening, but really annoying. I could handle things until my sons both moved away and then the boat became too much for me. Maybe later I will get something smaller. Doc says might be a year before I can handle it.

"Diversion from work or serious matters"

This definition seems accurate to me as I am at work right now...reading the forum.

I would be all over this boat if it had two cabins

Hemingway said it best, "There are but three sports - bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering - the rest are merely games.

Hmmmmm. Never heard that one. Apparently I need the bullfighting to complete the Hemingway tri-ludi.

Is there a t-shirt?
