Hello Waggy
Yeah I saw that, guy wanted like $59K for the thing. There are some AMAZING boat deals that come up on EBay from time to time it's fun to watch and wonder what the back story is.

This one was for sale - forever - guy kept lowering the price but no takers. It's a BEAST of a boat, and really wonky on the inside. Looks like a real challenge to dock under any conditions as it's basically a giant box sitting on a catamaran type hull.

Thanks for the welcome.

Yeah I could see a nightmare with that Carri-Craft in a strong wind.

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

There's one sitting next to our boat in the dry storage yard at the Bay Bridge Marina on Kent Island (MD). It's a beast!! Looks like it would make a very comfortable live-aboard.

WOW that's a lot nicer than the one at Anchor Pointe! I'll try and remember to take a picture of it next weekend.

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

With twin engines that far apart, it should be pretty easy to control.

Pretty cool cruiser! I'm guessing that this was a semi displacement boat? With a couple of small diesel engines, this would be a great trawler alternative. The rolling motion would never be a problem with one of these!

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

I have a 58 ft carricraft as an office .
It was a tour boat here in Ketchikan alaska for many years.
It is a wonderful boat with two 6068 john deeres
It is huge inside and was inspected for 70 passengers inside and on the roof.

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

I have a 1996 45 foot Carri Craft that I am looking to sell. It is a one owner boat, custom built in 1996. I have all service records since the first launch. I'm looking to sell the boat and was hoping someone could give me advice on where to advertise.

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

That's one of the nicest one of those I've ever seen.

I'd post it on the Trawler Forum classifieds, Cruiser's forum, Boat Trader, and Ebay. Yes, Ebay. You'd be surprised how many people look for big boats on Ebay.

Good luck with it!!

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

Thanks for the advice Moosemiester! I'm going to look into putting this on the Trawler Forum classifieds and the Cruiser forum. I was surprised myself that eBay was on option.

The boat is in really great shape and was a blast to own, I just don't have the time that I used to and hate to see the boat sit around all summer.

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

My friend has a 1967 Carrie craft in des Moines Iowa for sale. He bought a new one this year...it's in dry dock now. I think it's a 35 footer but could be 45. I have exterior photos I could email to you.

Re: The Carri-Craft History - the real story

Here's a few photos of a Carri-craft rebuild that I did many years ago. She was originally named the Aristocat no came to Bermuda from the Ozarks.
