Re: Find My Boat - $5,000 REWARD!!!

www.bananabeltboats.com has one of my friend's boats listed. It's a 44 and beautiful. You might want to check it out. Owned by a professional cabinet maker and maintained beautifully. Hi-Star Convertible. Smaller than what you asked for but nice nevertheless.

kind regards,

This one has 3 state rooms, fiberglass, twin diesels, 55ft, maybe not luxury finishes, and not so new, but nice. $400k.
From the bannabeltboat site.

Re: Find My Boat - $5,000 REWARD!!!

GG:

Not interested in the $5K but here's a thought:
Take a short road trip to New Bedford. There are several larger vessels (not fishing boats!!) that have been tied up at Pope's Marina and around that area for some time. Might be worth while to ask around, perhaps on your way to Newport next week. Just walk the dock and ask. Ask around at Niemec Marine and Fairhaven Shipyard. Incidentally, some of the fishing boats are quite pretty and are mostly idle these days -- though they may smell fishy!!

Are you sure that isn't a 100'? Is it in Belfast?

Re: Find My Boat - $5,000 REWARD!!!

I want to thank everyone who has been scouring the net in search of my first boat. I really appreciate the time and effort. I have had many boats brought to my attention these past few days that I have not seen yet. Our family will live on the boat, including my 5 kids, so it is very important to me that I get it right.
Our plan is to hang around here in Boston as liveaboards for a year or so until I am fully competent at the operation of the boat, then take off cruising. International travel is the goal.
A good friend/advisor suggested that I post a few photos of the style of boat that I am looking for as a guide. I thought this was a great idea.

This boat is unbelievable. I almost bought it, but came to my senses at the last minute because it is wood. I am avoiding WOOD.
Southern Marine Malahide



This boat I loved. I tried to get the owner to hold it for me a few months ago as my house was not sold yet, but I was unsuccessful, and it sold. Seahorse Marine only made 5 of these boats.
55' seahorse Oceaneer



This boat was pointed out by Minaret. It is exactly the style, but only has 2 staterooms, I need at least 4 or 3 and crew.
60′ ALLIED SHIPYARDS PassageMaker





Looking for:
  • 55-70′
  • Raised Pilothouse
  • At least 4 staterooms (or 3 plus crew)
  • Steel or Fiberglass
  • Trawler/Expedition Style
  • Long Range
  • Passagemaking Capability
  • List Price not to exceed around $600k
Avoiding:
  • Wood
  • Motoryachts
If anyone spots a boat that meets the above, please let me know. Thank You!!!

Good call. I'd expect to see at least the possibility of some conversion. Good luck!

I am offering a $5,000 finders fee to anyone who introduces me to the boat that will be my first boat purchase. The boat must be a boat that I have NOT already seen and CANNOT be a boat that is listed on Yachtworld. I check Yachtworld every day for new listings, so I will see it myself. However, I sometimes miss boats that are posted on other boat for sale listing websites.

The reason that I came up with this reward idea was because when I was in Florida viewing the boat that I wanted to buy, but lost to someone else, the broker showed me a pocket-listing. (A pocket-listing is a boat that is not formerly listed for sale.) This boat was not for me, but gorgeous nonetheless. The broker told me that many good boats, never hit the market. They are sometimes held as pocket listings, such as the one that he showed me, and sometimes they are for sale by owner. I would never know about any of these boats. Therefore, I am offering this reward to anyone who can find my boat.

Looking for:
55-70′
Raised Pilothouse
At least 3 staterooms
Steel or Fiberglass
Trawler/Expedition Style
Long Range
Passagemaking Capability
List Price not to exceed around $600k
I actually might know of one ...
