42 feet of fun

40 feet of fun

OK, OK this is killing me. One more insane nice cruiser on Ebay. This time though there are a bunch of photos to drool over and clearly show off how sweet this ride is. I mean, look at the engine area..

You can have dinner down there! Clean bilge is a good sign of a good captain

Clean as a whistle.. The finish on the transom is right. Clean, dash, no pits.. None of it. $30K ish is a very reasonable price considering you can bet its turn key..I hope..

The master bedroom.. Clean, nice and tasteful..

It boggles my mind that a very cool Silver Arrow on ebay this week can be $120K and this sucker is a quarter of that. Yet 5 times the boat.. And a thousand times more entertaining.. Ya ya, I know all the issues.. It won’t fit into your garage.. Towing it can be a challenge.. But as a cruiser goes, 40 feet – ish is the way to go.. Good previous ownership, a must.. Could it be you? Just click here.. Go to the flicker page.. It’s fantastic and a great way to sell the boat. Here

    This thing is BEAUTIFUL!

    I wish I had done the research you are doing before I bought my Cruiser, even though being a “Bull Nose” fan I still probably would have bought American Beauty.

    How about this one in Texas? Only $19,500 buy it now.
    Just have to wait for the water to rise to get her out of the lake.

    Matt , you could call it “Super Suzy” life is short get out of the no wake zone already.

    I love the unmistakeable mid-sixties style of this boat. It comes from a great time and looks to be in Bristol fashion.

    BTW: you know you’re going to pull the trigger on one of these deals…. why wait?

    Suz-A-Palozza, or Szasaursrex, Suza-Sans-Banjo, Matt’s Coffin, or “She got every thing else”

    Matt: The other one you featured is still here in Alton NH. Drove by yesterday, got a big banner asking $25k.

    Dang! That is the BEST LOOKING CRUISER I have seen in a long time….I can’t work the link and don’t see her on Ebay????
    where is that baby?

    John in Va.

    • Troy in ANE

      I had the same trouble. Had to go to e-bay and search. Thought it was just the Maine internet.

      She is in Midland ON, Canada.

      You would look good in that John.

    troy, thank GOD she is that far away…..what a beauty…still can’t find her on ebay though.
    thanks,

    John in Va.

    Only about an hour from my house….

    And about 15 minutes from the 1907 Edwardian steamship SS Keewatin!

    You wanna be a cruiser guy, let’s do some refreshing regarding cruiser talk. Master bedroom or any bedroom on a boat is the stateroom! Your lounge is actuallythe salon, the controls is the helm station. Where you do your business is the head. You’ve also got the deck below you, the overhead is well, overhead, and the thing between the two is a bulkhead.
    All this makes more sense when the guy from the boatyard calls you, starts listing off where the repairs are needing to be made, and asks for another BOAT or two (Bring Over Another Thousand)

    Here is another one to drool over, thanks to Wolfe Marine here in Seattle.

      Nice reply Ron,

      But we still have an X-34 that needs a home! We have 20 cruisers in the Pacific Northwest that need new caretakers….. All of them are worthy of a skillful restoration.

    Road trips are fun! She is beautiful and soooo tempting. “The Temptress”

    There is just nothing that can compare to waking up in a quiet, secluded harbor each morning on your vacation cruise in one of these beauties. One stroll around the deck to experience the sunrise and forested harbor will sell you. It is hard to describe to someone who has only trailered their classic to a crowded launch ramp for an afternoon outing at a popular lake on a nice day.

    True, you can’t trailer her to boat shows around the country, but you just don’t need to. Save all those frustrating loooooong drives, vehicle breakdowns, and other frustrations to attend distant boat shows and make your own show in whatever exotic destination you choose to anchor or dock.

    Year ’round moorage costs — balance that against all those travel expenses, plus vehicle cost, to trailer your ‘baby’ to new destinations.

      I’ve said it once and I’ll say it a million times more. Your Martinique is the bee’s meow. The cat’s knees. The crime de la banana. Or something awesome like those.

    Love this Cruiser Love goin’ on!’ The beautiful Conqueror in the header is a 1962. ’61 & ’62 had the forward round window on the Cabin side. ’61 had special instinctive trim.’ So this is a ’62! The other Cruisers in the text and in the comments are wonderful to see. I think that last one looks like
    It might be a Martinque? I have to agree with all the sentiments expressed here and plan on being part of that crowd! Happy Cruising everyone!
