Having owned a Newport
for 10 years, I saw a couple of things on the N33 in your post that might be an issue. First, notice the water
stains just above the carpet in the pic of the "L" shaped settee. Looks like there was standing water
in the cabin
. Second, you can see lots of water stains on the wood trim below the ports
. Rebedding solved
that problem with my Newport
, but the veneer trim was toast. The Universal M-25 is a plus, most were built with a 16 hp Universal and underpowered. The Newport 27, 28, 30 and 41 are pretty fast, the Newport 33, not so much, but it is roomy. Large head
is a plus. Price
seems good, if the standing water did not rot
all the cabinet and bulkhead bases.
Enjoy the search.
