And this on’s been repowered w a JD.
I suspect you’re seeing all 80hp looking at both the bow and stern waves.
The rest of the boat may have been up-graded also.
That would make this a scream’in buy .... IMO
The Esprit was advertised here and elsewhere for sale in 2019, it now appears she is back on the market. I see that the mast has been removed in favor of a lower profile mount for the radar antenna. My guess is she made the loop, or was prepping for it? Or maybe the new owner wanted better visibility from the upper helm.
Still love her, even though below-decks she isn’t configured the way I would need her to be.
Wow... At 36' LOA / 10'6" beam / 3'6" draft / 12 ton displacement / 1 - 65 HP diesel / cruise speed 5 knots / usage liters per hr = Economy... Plus a real mellow ride!
She needs more fuel tankage though.....
Halvorsen built a lot of cruisers like this one, between 25 and 38ft, for their hire fleet which was sold off when they ceased business. They also built for private buyers, and for Police, and sailboats, and tugs... pretty much anything, small Navy patrol boats too I think, and possibly "crash boats" for attending downed planes.
from where she is being sold at Cottage Point, probably where she moors, the adjacent Club (KMYC) is virtually the "home" of Halvorsen and IG, if you travel 1-2 miles from your mooring you are somewhere you want to be, to overnight, or longer. So you tend not to run long hours. Most boats had Chrysler engines, side valve gas powered, easily flooded when starting, the diesel is a replacement of course. I never tire of seeing one, they are always pretty and usually well maintained, often by the broker who runs a shipwright business with broking as a sideline, he sold my IG for me.
I especially liked the "aged" interior teak trim

My boat Dreamweaver fell off the jacks about 5 or 6 years ago.
I understand it was repaired. Didn't know it was sold.
I wish the new owner many happy cruises.
Just saw your post on Dreamweaver. Sorry to hear about what happened. The gentleman who appears to have bought it after you was fixing it up in Fort Lauderdale. It appeared to have some water damage. He posted some videos on YouTube in 2015 of his work. Someone else bought it a couple of years ago and it is for sale again under the name Havn by a guy in Belfast, Maine. Unfortunately it has not been taken care of. He ripped out the port side tanks in the engine room to make space (for who knows what) and cut out some of the structural supports in the process (it looks a mess). It also appears he removed the main mast and stabilizers and built a "flybridge" out of plywood and fiberglass.
