SV CHANCE is a head-turning 34ft cruising sailboat that was completely rebuilt and refit from 2012 to 2014. (See below for complete list and details). Practically EVERYTHING ON THE BOAT IS BRAND NEW! Her rebuild/refit was documented on our sailing & cruising blog: www.sailingchance.com Feel free to see other photos, information and our step by step rebuild story. Chance is currently insured for $20k by Offshore Risk Management. Insurance was renewed last week. Chance is completely energy self-sufficient and spent nearly 1 year without plugging into shore power!

This boat is in the water in North Carolina and pretty much ready to go. Her slip fee is $150/mo. She was designed to meet the needs of her owners while cruising in the Bahamas. There are a few projects that we never completed and I've listed them below but she is in sailing condition now. Chance was last hauled in July of 2014 and was given a complete bottom job. THE ENTIRE HULL AND DECK IS BARRIER COATED with 6+ coats of Interlux E-2000, then Awl Grip Epoxy Sanding primer. Topsides and deck were painted with Interlux Perfection. We invested A BOAT LOAD in her and we're sad to see her go, but we're buying a bigger boat. Dinghy and Mercury 5hp 2 stroke outboard are included with full purchase price (outboard was just rebuilt and runs great). KISS windgen and Pink lines are not included (sorry Jason - (Seven-One-Eight) - 913 - 7786

WHAT CHANCE NEEDS (Projects)
  • Head liner installed (in salon and galley only)

  • engine paint (Starting to flake a bit)
  • Electrical wiring could use some straightening up behind the main panel.
  • A few switches need to be replaced
  • Blower needs to be swapped (Have new one)
  • Centerboard is currently pinned up and not in use. She sails perfectly well without it. We have a tube running up the bulkhead for line access. If you want to make the CB operable again, it will have to be done when the boat is hauled. I'd recommend a different method of operation as well.
  • Main needs repair
  • Brightwork and some interior woodwork could use some cleaning up, varnishing.
  • We never finished the interior paneling and trim as a whole, so while some things look great, a few others (more hidden) things are/look unfinished
  • Deck hatches need their compression/extension arms installed (we have)
  • V-berth cushion covers are new in 2012 with blue Sunbrella. We redid cushion in salon with new material. Never redid the v-berth. We still have the fabric.
  • Cockpit cushions need to be recovered or replaced, they're on their last legs.
  • The ST60's are installed and "there" but they are not in use. I never installed a masthead wind or replaced the speed transducer. This can be done at haulout.
  • Some of the painters tape was never removed on the saloon roof and on the topsides. Both deck and topsides could use some touch-up paint.
In General, Chance is ready to move aboard. She does need some basic cleaning, servicing etc. and could use some TLC (see the list above). That said, we were living aboard Chance quite happily and comfortably until September 2014 - we now have an apartment in NYC
Feel free to call me with any questions. She is being sold AS IS, WHERE IS. Cheers!

The electronics links work, but the first link to your boat doesn't work. The bottom one works.

Re: 34' Seafarer - BRAND NEW EVERYTHING!

Are you sure this is a 34'?

I did some checking and it looks to me like this is a 31".

None of the drawings for the 34' match the layout of this boat. However, the layout does match the 31'.

Re: 34' Seafarer - BRAND NEW EVERYTHING!

I'm 100% positive it's the 34CB. This is my 2nd Seafarer, my previous was the 31 Mk1. I've also spend a ton of time on the 30, and 31 mk2. Seafarer's only model in the 30's with a CB was the 34. If you are looking at the interior layout differences, remember we completely rebuilt her.

I'm one of the admins of the Seafarer group on Facebook and have a ton of information on these boats if interested. I also have digital versions of some of the original drawings for this boat (courtesy of McCurdy & Rhodes).

Let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!

Jason

Re: 34' Seafarer - BRAND NEW EVERYTHING!

Here are the two vessels and their drawings.

Seafarer 31-2
First Build 1974
SEAFARER 31-2 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Seafarer 34'
First Build 1972
SEAFARER 34 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com


I'm only saying, it looks from the drawings to be a 31-2.
