Seafarer 34 FREE to a Good Home

This email was sent to me from Old Boat Magazine. It might be of interest to someone looking for a boat. PM me for the email or contact Good Old Boat Magazine.

Seafarer 34 free to a good home

JB is offering his 1973 Seafarer 34 for free to a good home. He has been unable to sell
Seaquest and would like to see her moved to a new home and stored there before winter sets in. Seaquest is located in Michigan City, Indiana, at the southern tip of Lake Michigan.

He says:
A 2003 survey appraised the boat at $27,000, when it still needed a fix on the rudder and a fix on the starboard deck. Both those repairs have been done, plus a new headsail and roller furling system indicates the boat is every bit of good condition it was in in 2003 if not better.

The boat is now rigged as a sloop, not as a yawl. The headsail is new, the main is not new and is sized for a yawl, so a bit small for a sloop rigging.

The cockpit needs a sanding and repainting and there is a small soft patch on the starboard deck that I repaired, but need to sand a smidge and paint. With the boat on the hard since 2009, the diesel fuel needs to be removed and the tank cleaned/scrubbed. Other than that, she is serviceable, in great shape, and just in need of its regular maintenance.

For real? Wife looking at me like I'm nuts, though that's nothing special. Wonder what it would cost to truck to Staten Island? I'll search 'boat transport' here and see what comes up.

Re: Seafarer 34 FREE to a Good Home

I assume it is for real. The owner is probably looking at hundred or more dollars to keep storing it so he has perhaps decided to cut his loses. My guess is shipping would be $4000 or so plus you would want to see it before you dropped your money to make sure it was even worth that much.

Thanks for the guesstimate! Yes, seeing it before committing to transport would be the wise thing to do.

Please send contact info requests as a private message to me. I don't know if the boat is still available.

Re: Seafarer 34 FREE to a Good Home

I have had contact with the person offering this boat. He has been inundated with interest and currently has 11 people who are finalists. He will be showing the boat on Thursday November 3, 2011 at which time the new owner will likely be chosen. If you are still interested then PM me and I will provide you with the details.

He wanted to stress that other interested parties (outside of the 11 finalists) may eligible to be offered this boat so if you are in the Great Lakes area I can give you the information to find on when and where the showing will occur.
