Quite a few rolls Royce powered trawlers and cruisers in our part of the world.
Can't be that bad.

An older OA

Spotted this 1982 Ocean Alexander 55 for sale in Perth, Western Australia. Looks like the bottom needs taking back,otherwise a nice big boat for age and price.

Very nice OA50 MK1 that has been extended. Possibly overpowered but canít complain about any repower at that age. Brian on Insequent may know more about its history.

Here is a fixer upper Mainship 34, in New York, on eBay, that should go pretty cheap. Runs but has oil leak. Looks like decay issues at the back door. There is a $300 charity fee above the bid price.


Auction ends Wednesday 4pm. Pacific Time??

It's a charity boat so someone might have had good reasons to give-up on it.

It has stabilizers and I'll bet they are defunct.

Good buying for these parts

How is the ER accessed?
Through the cockpit floor hatches?

That (3 easily removed in the galley floor and 2 less so) and there is normally a small door at the bottom of the steps down from the saloon to the main cabin.

Thanks
So no walk around space unless hatches open?
ER pic has it looking like crawl space but could be deceptive.

Definitely not walk. Itís about 4ft headroom in the ER. Once there I can sit normally to do stuff but have to move around hunched over.

Should mention that the PO in mine lowered most of the ER floor by about 10 inches. In this photo the section nearest the door would be the normal configuration Click image for larger version

Yeah, that's a shame for me.
Nice boat for sure but I work on the principle that if I can't easily get around down there, especially if things are hot, I am not going to want to get in there as often as I should.

6ft 2 headroom and being able to easily walk around 3 sides of the engine was a major selling point on ours.

Our marina mechanic likes to work at night during hot weather,once sent me pics timed at 1am. Somewhat unconventional but a good mechanic.

My boat is not tight to work on except outboard of the engines, but some Rivs on the marina are really tight, with low headroom.

Agreed, especially on a motorboat where the engine is the heart of the vessel.

On a previous boat I had about 5ft in the engine room and that was acceptable - hunched over but not uncomfortable. I visited a builder in Turkey and the headroom was 4ft, which was a couple inches too short to even sit. Airfare wasted but well spent.

6'2" minimum hr in ER for me - or I no purchase boat! Our Tolly has wide and long dual [carpet topped hatches] that stand fully erect on piano hinges in the salon floor. They easily open to provide unlimited hr for greatly comfortable access to engines, gen set, batts... etc. I love that feature in our Tolly tri cabin. Admiral loves that feature too as well as other items it allows - like me not bitching too much when needing to get into the ER for any reason! LOL

The Mainship went for $15,050, more than I guessed. It was about $7200 when I posted it here. Missed the mention of a generator problem too. It's a big toy for a little money and should make someone happy. New York must be a pretty good market.

Another eBay Mainship in New York, 30 foot this time, $15,000. Owner says it's ready to loop, runs good, solid decks, but not perfect. Didn't catch any mentioned of a generator. Phone number in ad.

Ends Sunday morning.
