Greetings,
Mr. D. Interesting, indeed. I wonder if the seemingly low price is as a result of the engine having 15,000 hours on it? Due for a re-power/rebuild perhaps? Not very much fuel tankage, in any case. Shows very nicely and I like, what appears to be, a full instrument panel in the ER. Nice touch.

Wow, what a cool boat. Obviously buying it would be the cheapest part.

A bit too much carpet for me, but other than that she'd be a nice liveaboard cruiser.
Aw, c'mon! Link?

Yeah, both Cardude & I were salivating over that one....especially the engine rooms, which are awesome spaces compared to most cats.

Add me to this list. I once had a 54' Sport fisher and that was a little too big! Even my present 42 footer sometime feels bigger than I need but I really love her!

I definitely am in the camp that says "get the smallest boat that has everything you want." To some, that may be 29 feet while others need a 64 footer.

Greetings,
My cypherin's a bit rusty but 15,000 gallons of fuel @ 1 gal/mile is about 15,000 miles. Or 8 GPH @ 9 knots is 16,875 miles. So where does the 30,000 mile range come from?

Magic math!
I would be absolutely amazed if that thing could get 1/2 MPG at 9kts

I think the low price is due to it being on a lake that's hundreds of miles from tidewater so there is limited clientele.

Yesterday we accepted an offer on LUCY our 50 ft Navy Utility.

Looking at this. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/198...ce-52-3019464/

Wondering what known down sides to this builder are. The hull is Airex , which is best , but wonder if the deck and PH are plywood with a slather of GRP on top?

Damn Fred! You get that beauty, please send photos of you aboard! How long you had Lucy? Sure you can make it without her?? Good luck in your boat swap mission.

BTW - That boat is one of the most beautiful seen on this thread. Price is right!
