Sold-1979 Mainship 34 for sale $9000.

My neighbor has a 79 Mainship 34 that he needs to sell ASAP due to a sudden job offer in Florida. It has a Perkins diesel and a bow thruster. If you are interested PM me and I will give you his phone number.

If it were me, I would most certainly take the boat with me to Florida.

He has too much to deal with trying to get moved. He has a six month old baby and doesnít want to deal with the boat. He has to be there in a couple of weeks.

That's half of what could be had with some time on the open market but it's his boat.

I know but he is under pressure to get it sold. It is a nice boat, I drove it 2 years ago. This year he didnít even get it in the water due to the new baby. He just has other priorities now.

The boat is on FaceBook's
Trawlers For Sale group.



He dropped the price to $7500.


Here's the ad:


Norm Perkins

Yesterday at 9:12 AM

1979 Mainship 340 Diesel
$9,000 Now $7,500
Au Gres, MI


34' Diesel Trawler
These are all the pictures that I have.
bow thruster
Great boat, 220 fuel tanks, very efficient, perkins turbo diesel.
fridge works, stove works, engine runs great, hour meter quit a few years ago but showed around 1100 (if I remember correctly) The Perkins is rated beyond 10,000 hours before needing a rebuild, so it never concerned me. Single screw, no generator.
rear camper enclosure
nice project and with a little elbow grease this is a great boat to use and get your money back later. Very reliable and simple boat that has never let us down and I'd be comfortable taking it just about anywhere.
has 2 soft spots, one on rear of fly bridge floor and another under the sliding door, 2 of the windows should be replaced.
we are moving to Florida and the boat is staying. This is probably the cheapest Diesel Trawler and or Mainship on the market. Currently in storage in Au Gres Michigan. I dont have any interior pictures but its very decent and very original.
Norm

I would jump on it if this was not 1100 miles away (don't know how to drive on snow), and this South MS boy wouldn't freeze his privates off.

That's cheap enough to buy sight unseen. Those are great boats.

Somebody is going to get a smoking deal. I would buy it if I werenít knee deep working on mine. I would then put it up for sale and make some money.

If you mean the one with 3 different posts saying it's already sold, I think it's already sold.
