Mainship 34 Mk1 for sale, Annapolis MD

I have a 1978 Mk1 34 with re-engined Perkins Turbo. Bow thruster, full canvas. In the water near Annapolis, MD. For the last year I have not been able to use the boat due to illness and I need to sell it. I can no longer care for the boat and while mechanically good, it needs TLC.
I am asking $25,000 as is. Contact me at digital_djs@hotmail.com. if interested and I can provide details.

Photos and Details

Description and features:

· Mainship 34 Mk1 Trawler , built by Silverton / Mainship 1978
· Westerbeke Marine generator engine 3 cylinder diesel 5kw
· Extended Flybridge
· Re-engine in 1985 with 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, 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.

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 replaced. Parts are on boat but not installed.
· One light switch on inside pilot console needs to be replaced (I think it’s the salon lights)
· Lock on sliding salon door works but is old and worn, should be replaced.
· Engine heat exchanger core needs to be removed and cleaned. Engine temperature rises when at full power.
· Batteries are 3 or more years old and will need replacement soon
· Need to be hauled, bottom and prop cleaned and bottom paint re-applied
· Toilet does not flush properly because there is a blockage in the piping from toilet to holding tank. Piping needs to be replaced. I have been unable to unclog this and I suspect there is calcium deposits that cannot be removed due to age of the tubing.
· Anchor rode is aging and should be replaced soon

The boat is currently in the water near Annapolis, MD, but is scheduled for haul out, cleaning and winter storage before the end of October.

I am no longer able to maintain or use the boat so I need to sell and am willing to sell as is for $25,000.

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.

Too bad you didn't post this a week or so earlier, I was in Annapolis for the show. Do you have a few more pictures? I just started seriously looking at these boats.

I'm sorry at this time I don't have more pictures, but I can take some during haul out. I will be having things fixed off my punch list during winter storage and the price will go up accordingly.

The soft deck spots are very common in boats of this age. They were there in when I bought the boat 7 years ago and have not caused a problem, but you can repair them if you are good with epoxy and fiberglass. There are very detailed guides on how to re-core parts or all of the flybridge on the yahoo Mainship group.

Since considering this particular boat/make/model, I found the info that you referred too on Yahoo Mainship group. It really doesn't scare me that much. Did you paint the hull blue or was it that color when you bought it?

I had it painted after I bought the boat several years ago. It has the original white gel-coat underneath.

I'm lowering the price $23, 000 OBO prior to haul for winter storage and punch list fixes.
