Nice Wooden Halvorsen

This 1952 Halvorsen 30 looks sympathetically maintained, with some upgrades. The Broker Andrew Storey is a Shipwright who does a little broking as well, he sold my last boat and has done work on it and my current boat. Not cheap but generally competent. It`s a pretty boat for a Halvorsen admirer. Quite likely Andrew did some of the work that`s listed.

Beautiful piece of art to have and maintain. Thanks for sharing!

First splashed just 8 months past my birth.

Love the 3/5th transom width retractable swim step. And, by looking at the photos... especially when I hit the one showing engine compartment, a rush of late 1950's, throughout the 60's and into early 70's... decades ago really nice wood boat odors came flooding back into my olfactory memory banks.

Cheers! - Art

You can have it. It's a wooden hull and perhaps in a trust for preservation ..... Could be, you buy and maintain but cant sell it without the permission of the trust.

The hull is steel, and the boat (ship) has been recommended for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, which presumably means the new owner has the option to not proceed with it.

Of course it's a pure fantasy. The cost of maintaining a 90 year old steel ship would bankrupt anyone who doesn't have Silicon Valley money.

Nick, after reading about it, you are correct. Riveted steel hull.

Unless you plan to start a charter business, there is not much attraction for me. Even then, there are better options. Certainly not a personal trawler. But interesting just the same.

If the 1936 former Army boat didn’t do it for you, how about this one: a 1970 75 ft former polar rescue vessel, ice rated, built in Norway, converted to a luxurious expedition yacht;

I’m sitting on the pier in Belfast Maine as I write this, looking at this beautiful boat. The price seems surprisingly low for what it is.

I couldn’t resist taking a closer look. This is a beautiful, incredibly stout vessel. Check out the size of the anchor windlass! It looks to be in very good condition, other than needing bottom paint (the folks next door at the Front Street Shipyard could take care of that). It can be yours for the low low price of $875,000 (I wish I could afford the upkeep).

Any enlargement experts able to read the name of the ferry in the background? Possibly "Kameruka" ?

Sorry for the sailboat diversion, but couldn't resist. I've admired this boat for years, though I would not want to own it. We passed it in the harbor yesterday and noticed a for sale sign. My wife commented that it's probably a $1M yacht. Surprised to see that it could be bought for ~$60K, maybe less. I get that it's a 65 y.o. wood boat, but it looks like quite a bit was invested in refurb over the last decade or so. The interior looks pretty rough, but it is stunning to look at sitting in the harbor.

I feel sorry in advance for the docks that I might strike with that beauty.

Any guess as to what this boat is? I saw it today sitting at the Front Street Shipyard in Belfast Maine.

On one hand it looks like it is/was/should have been a sailboat or a motorsailer - twin keels, small prop. On the other hand, I couldn't see any sign of a mast.

Not sure about the pilothouse, if it's factory or added afterwards. The prop is also unusual - it's either a folding prop or a variable pitch (I couldn't tell, other than it seems small for this size boat).

The manufacturer's identification on the hull ID number is 'SWB' - the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle WA. But the boat is definitely fiberglass, molded and not glassed wood.

It certainly looks stoutly built and very seaworthy. Any guesses?

Yes, I am sure the builders spouse has been heard to say....................."and he designed and built it all by himself" BUT having said that I am sure it suits their needs and is comfortable for them although sale time might bring out a few home truths.
