For Sale: 1988 CC 501

Tried to post this before with no luck. Looking for a trawler for the great loop? I have something you might be interested in. We have a 1988 501 we bought in 2013. It wasn't a project boat but we did do a pretty complete restore project (over 100K) while using her as a winter home in Ft Myers Beach, including a complete paint job by Diversified in Ft Myers ( paint house.,5 star paint job)Hardware off, new rub rail, custom 12ft glass tender and Marquip type custom crane. We did engine work,bottom ,software, and she is beautiful again. This 501 gets over a mile per gallon at 1150rpm, 12mph and 8.5 gph ( total both eng !) She does 26 mph wot and cruises all day at 15-17 mph and 28 gph. 501 CCs have a very solid glass hull and are build to standards that rival Hatt and Bertram. I have now decided that I want a Convertible again and will be moving in that direction but it will be another solid glass hull ( Post,Viking, maybe even a 50 Silverton)! My surveyor told me to NEVER buy a cored hull boat. Cored decks are mostly OK...but not bottoms or hull sides...period! His words not mine! He was one of many prime surveyors in New Orleans and said no cored hulls survive anywhere like the solid hulled boats and certain makes were ALL totaled! Email jgdrd7605@verizon.net if interested. Gary
My beauty has a few things left to do but nothing major.

Perhaps pictures and a price would yield better results than the last time you posted it.

Gary, post #6 of the above link should help you post pictures. Let me know if you still cannot figure it out. You can email the pictures to me and I'll upload them for you if you need.

Feel free to send me anymore you need posted Gary and I'll keep an eye on my inbox for them.

Edit: Gary told me in his email to ignore the dates because he is no better at programming the camera than he is at posting photos online

Is it painted?

If not what is the finish on it that is giving it that gloss?

Hello lady,

If posting online pictures without the date been seen is an issue, I think I can help with that.
Lovely boat by the way wish I can place a price on it. Wow

cambria lady 1988 501 for sale

Yes it is painted. It's the same as the other good quality poly urethane paints like awgrip and imron .It's by EMC and is one of the very few that can be "blended" without repainting an entire section...and the shine is real, looks even better in person and has been washed only, never waxed. One of the big pluses is it was painted in a climate, dust and bug controlled "paint house" at Diversified, Ft Myers supervised by Bob Marra.

Is there a formal listing of the boat somewhere ?
My wife and I are in good Looper boat that may work for you.
We are year round liveaboards and the boat is set up that way. Diesel and propane fireplaces etc...
