Must sell. 34 Mainship Mk1 , 1978 $20k OBO

I have a 1978 Mk1 34 with re-engined Perkins Turbo. Bow thruster, full canvas. 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. It's mechanically good, it needs TLC.
I am asking $20,000 OBO as is.

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 removed and cleaned. Engine temperature rises when at full power.
· Needs bottom and prop cleaned and bottom paint re-applied
· Toilet does not flush properly because there is a blockage in the PVC from toilet to holding tank.
· Anchor rode is aging and should be checked /replaced soon

Somewhat of a project boat, as you have noted, but for that price I would think someone might be interested.

I hope your user name is based on the modern connotation and not the traditional.

Good luck with your sale!

It looks like a nice boat however soft decks are or can be a major issue even at $20k.
Is this price firm are and do you have a recent even value survey?

Decks are easy to fix, just mostly labor. I did many areas on my "ex" Mainship 1.
The heater core is the big dollar item here if it does not come apart without damage.

For the heat exchanger, it may be as simple as doing a good backflush to remove debris and old impeller fins. That would be my first effort. Aftermarket and OEM replacement parts are available from TAD, Orca, Go2Marine etc.

It's hard to believe no one has jumped on this. I like your straight up, honest approach. Good luck!

At that price there's no reason at all why it should be. If it where located in California I would have paid cash without a survey the day he dropped the price, and I'm not even in the market for one.

It was high on my list when I was looking for "trawler" style boats. Having owned a 1993 Mainship 40 SB for 8 years it was a fairly sound boat for it's intended use. Too bad my use changed or I would still own it.
