My Dad had a i think a 79 Monk McQueen
great boat . 70 feet
fully updated with huge battery banks plus big inverters and every thing new over the 7 years we owned it genny, water maker all new toilets all kitchen app all new electronics plus bow truster
rolled like a son of B but sure cut thru the waves nice.
great handling boat great looking boat.
very hard to sell 10 years ago for 145 K CAN and the broker started off at 280K till we just dumped it
wood boats are really not desirable
And if not boat house kept 3 time worse to keep up
Wood does have benefits but really work on the price
the 86 year old guy that bought it from us parked outside and just used it after 3 years out side with no maintenance it sold for 70 k and then the guy who bought it parked it at a out side down town Vancouver dock and is using it as a condo slowly working on it.
wood boats are labours of love that can be rewarding
get a good deal on it
