You might want to reconsider not posting a price. At least for a "soft opening" here on the forum. You could post for 10% less than you would be listing with a broker and if the price is reasonable, you might sell before even going THROUGH a broker. Or you can list with a broker for his inflated asking price and have it languish on YW for a year, costing you more than 10% of the sale price in moorage, insurance, maintenance, etc and then STILL having to drop the price in order to sell through a broker . . .

Looking to purchase

Please let me know when you decide on price. Maybe save broker's fee? I am in the market to buy.

Absolutely fantastic example of a Grand Banks motor yacht. So much inspiration to refine our 46MY. Thank you for posting and good luck with your sale.

She has a lot of sizzle for sure. If you sold her for over $175,000. you will have set a new recent world record (last 4 years). You just may do slightly over that is my guess.
The motor yacht models have been a tough sell everyone wants the classic. For living space the motor yacht is the right choice.

Greetings, kudos to you both for the work on the boat and the website. Both are superbly done! I too would be interested in looking at her when I return to Maine in July.

Obviously well-cared for. The price of around $125K appears ball park. Downside is age, hours on the engine (however, recent work and probably thousands more to go), and lots of bright work. The positives are many more - congratulations for excellent work.

What is her fuel burn?

Be proud of your accomplishments.

Only the aquamarine engine bolt heads don't work for me; otherwise exquisite.

Beautiful craft, great web page. If I didn't live in Australia I would be first in line, must be tough to put her on the market. Love the colorful engines.

First off that is not really a boat but more of a museum piece, if you told me to take her out for a spin, I would have to go home shower and put on my nicest outfit.. I tell everyone that my 43 Marine Trader is a "fishing boat" that to me means a work boat, allowing me the excuse of keeping all mechanical and electrical in top shape but not keeping up with the teak and finishes.. your boat is like I said a museum piece and those who are interested 5,000 hours on a Lehman 135 is nothing.

Sale it yourself if you can, I think this benefits both the buyer and seller, leaves communication channels more open and makes everyone happier in the long run. I just sold my house myself, it allowed me the ability to call all the shots and the buyer is fully aware of every detail information is lost going through another party. Good luck !

Well done - she is beautiful (understatement). And the website is very easy to follow.
We own a 1983 GB 36 Classic, and Rose Mary's elegance is something to aspire to. Thank you for sharing on here and good luck. I'll pass the word around down here in the South.

Beautiful boat, I thinks the other thing that is impressive that you live aboard and the boat is not all cluttered up with junk as on most live aboards!

Finally posted! Check it out here:

We decided to start at $229k. A few different people pulled some comps from soldboats which was very helpful. We also had a surveyor come through who was overly impressed with our work. I'm hoping that there there are certain folks who will appreciate upgrades that are difficult to find in any other boat (double pane windows, insulation, marble countertops, shiplap ceilings, etc.). Of course, there are also the people who will look at year, hours, and make and decide on a price - this boat likely isn't for them.

We'll see what happens! Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone!

My first largish boat was a Uniflite 42. It was in fantastic condition despite being pretty old - we would not have looked at it had it not been at the broker's docks. Now, this was pre-Internet, but still. I've often thought some boats just need to be in better company.

For example, in my opinion, Willards are seemingly under valued in the market with W40's often listing for $125k and still take a while to sell so it's hard to call a premium for an especially well cared for one. But if that same well-cared W40 were sitting a sales' dock with some Nordic/American Tugs at +$250k, well, the Willard might seem like a steal at $175k.
