It is indeed, complete with the larger 18HP engines

Most of what she need is a little TLC. to be honest the wiring was the worst pile of Cr*p I have ever seen, but on such a simple vessel, I adopted the time honoured policy of "rip it all out and start again", only the original Yanmar engine harnesses survived

The head lining had the usual sagging issues but I have a fix which while not the fastest, looks good and costs little

The nav system need replacing, but since it is probably 20+ years old, I'll live with that as expected.

The mainsail need replacing as I suspect it is the original from 1986, but the selections of foresails are all good, so I can live with that too

Regards

Dwayne

Question for Brown aficionados: Although I pointed out to the owner that his boat is a Sea Clipper, he continues to advertise it as a Sea Runner. Are the two models generally considered to be the same boat? Is a Sea Runner preferable to a Sea Clipper?

It could be an optical illusion, but is the port bow wonky?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Man oh man, if I had tons of mula I'd love to buy and have a pro bring this wreck back.

Seems like we are finally seeing more and more Irma boats hit the market, right? Or am I only now just starting to pay attention....?

I believe that it is a Constant Camber 35, a more modern Marple's design than the others.

The boats are all described well at their site Searunner Multihulls - Home. There might be a tendency for folks to spread the Searunner name more because it is the company name and they are the foundation boats. Here is their brief description of the lines:

"The Seaclipper Series is the simplest--designed with the novice builder in mind. Lengths range from 10 to 41 feet. The Searunners are sophisticated plywood designs by Jim Brown featuring cutter rigs, central cockpits, and centerboards. These ocean-going designs run from 25 to 40 feet. Our Constant Camber series are modern cold-molded designs featuring pre-laminated hull panels and other components."

As always, which is "preferable" depends on who is doing the preferring.

The amas are asymmetrical and canted out a little and that photo emphasizes it on the port side.
