I thought you guys might find this interesting. 1985 Carver 28 aft cabin with a good price IMHO. Would be a good looper I think.

I would have loved to have seen that ad when I lived on Lake Superior, especially with that price. I looked and looked and drove down to upper Lake Michigan too many times, for a boat in that class and finally settled for something smaller.

You haven't seen the Channel when it's angry. These are NOT blue water boats. In fact the design goes back a long way as an inland freighter. They haven't been used for that in a loooong time. Modern inland cargo vessels have been designed by engineers who were trained in the modern era......This is either an 80 or more year old vessel most likely shortened, and converted to recreational including but not imited to new deck house and finished interior, or it is a purpose built recreational retro vessel possibly of the Luxemotor brand. $$$$$ Hard to tell from the pic.

I would love to find out more about this boat! Here's what I've been able to glean from google:

It's a 1953 71ft Feadship. Steel Hull, twin Detroit 6-110's USCG Vessel # 267255

It was bought new by the Sheaffer Pen co. in 1953 and named the "Wasp II" (W. A. Sheaffer Pen Co.).

I wonder if it's still around?

Cheers! mike

I'd bet she's still sailing. It's amazing how boats 50-100 years old are still cruising, having lived their lives in such harsh environments.

My 1956 Burger was built to a similar standard to the Feadship above. 65'x16'x5'. Steel hull, teak decks bolted directly to the framing. Wood deckhouse with canvas/paint for watertightness. Twin 6-71s. PO made crossings back and forth across the Pacific. Still operating in the charter trade today.

Here's my girl when I kept her in Newport Harbor

Here's one I snapped not too long ago. I don't know anything about the boat, but she was moored up at the next marina down the river from me, and she's an absolute stunner.

She's a gorgeous boat. I grabbed a not nearly as good cell phone photo of her in Oswego Harbor last August.

Well how about that. My uncle was aboard and said he thought it was a Grand Banks. I assured him it wasn’t, but he was more right than I gave him credit for.

Correct observation to my thinking! Over time the thought of acquiring one of these for the accommodations in a boat that would fit my stall and offer "Couples" cruising were the two large gas engines replaced with a couple of small three or four cyl. diesels. Even then the engine space allowance would be tight so the thought dissipates quickly.
Would like if an owner would rebutt on engine access.

Boat apparently needs a little bit of motor work, however.

From the add, "Dual 454's needs starter new exhaust on one motor other needs new distributor and heat exchanger."

I saw that. From the first picture, however, I suspect they'll need a little more than that.

Amazing how that person had the guts to post that ad. Basically, it says "I've got a very expensive problem and I'd like someone to come take it off my hands for nothing."
