Re: TANGIER Motor Sailor for Sale!

I also would like to mention, that this boat uses only 3 1/2 gallons of fuel per hour of cruising with the efficient gardiner engine. They don't build engines like this anymore.


So it is very fuel efficient if you don't want to sail.
Thank you!

Thank you!

consumption was around 24lt per hour at 8.5 kts, it was not bad for a +100t boat

6.5 gallons per hour

I don't think there is a website that lists the boat for sale? Here is an earlier thread that will help any interested party contact the current owner. Or they can PM the OP of this thread (OrcasIsland)

Re: Motor Sailor "Tangier" 75 ft for sale!

Hi Brian!
I listed the boat under the classifieds, as I was told to do. it really should show up in these adds.
The owner wants 200 K for it.


Thank you for your interest!


Tom

Maybe the owner after you were the Captain on her installed additional fuel tanks? It seems he did a lot of work on interior, and increasing range may have been something he wanted, or needed.

Would be nice to remove the masts, drop some lead off the keel, and turn it into an LRC type of motorboat. That would be my vote.

was useful for damped the roll.
In France I know a complete rigging who came from a sunk schooner.
Ok at less one of this mast could replace the main mast and save lot of weight, because the mast of Tangier are in steel.
And also if weight saved in mast,( may be 600kg at 12 m above wl) could also save some weight on ballast ( may be 4t at 1.8m below wl)



For example the ballast added in the front of engine room, no more access to the bilge at this place. Hope they change that during the refit in Amel boatyard.

Re: Tangier 75 ft Motor Sailor!

No, it has not, that's why it is being sold so reasonable. The boat has been out of the water in the boat yard for 15 years or so.

Normally it would sell for a lot more, it needs a total overhaul, as mentioned in the classified.
Thank you!

So, if I understand correctly, the boat is available for viewing at Georgetown Yacht Basin in Maryland, it is and has been on the hard for 15 years, the owner is somehow living in it currently on dry land. Here’s a partial photo of it in front of a pirate ship in fact.

Other than it needing to be “overhauled” do you have any details at all? I’ll be in Baltimore next weekend, but that’s an almost 2 hour drive. Have you seen it yourself - is it in need of scrapping? Appreciate some honest info.

Curiously I gave technical information on the potential range of Tangier and the material of this mast; and my post was deleted because "I criticize " the Tangier.
I just precise the range of the Tangier is around 3000nm ( it is already a lot) not possible 8000 nm.

I think It could be interesting for a potential customer.
For example when I put my boat on advertise here some people wrote
the selling will be 30% less, the form is not a good form for trawler etc etc

I never complain because it is good if everybody give information and you never cancel this post...

Re: "TANGIER" Motor Sailor for SALE

Hi!
I did not cancel your post, think it is all good information you are giving.
They had cancelled one of my posts too.


I guess they have their regulations.
Thank you!

We were based at this yard for almost 20 years. We saw this boat on the hard. While periodically there was some activity we didn't observe that much work being done on it.

Just a data point.

Re: Tangier 80 ft Motor Sailor for Sale

Thank you for your input.
The reason not much work was being done on it, as the owner was doing all the work himself.

A big task for one person.
