1978 Islander/Yachtcraft 34 rare classic cutter-rigged sailboat

Great ocean-worthy liveaboard or weekend getaway for your water-front home. Slip available for $200/month or boat can be relocated to your destination of choice. MOTIVATED SELLER! JUST DROPPED PRICE BY -$5,000 AND THEN -$2,650 AND THEN -$2,000 TO $7,850. CURRENTLY LOCATED IN SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA (32937 ZIP CODE). MUST GO NOW. MAY CONSIDER OWNER-FINANCING TO QUALIFIED US NATIONAL WITH 50% DOWN ($3,925) AND MONTHLY PAYMENTS OF $78.65 @ 7.5% INTEREST OVER 5 YEARS. WILL OTHERWISE CONSIDER TRADE FOR PONTOON BOAT & TRAILER, LAND, TRUCK OR FARM EQUIPMENT (OWN FRESHWATER LAKES AND GOATS NOW). This 1978 cutter-rigged Islander/Yachtcraft 34 has one of the most heavy-duty builds of the kit-boats in its class, a comfortable low-freeboard cruiser, and current owner of past 14 years has completed several projects including re-engineering/-build of 5 large windows and reseating of portlights, custom cedar-strip ceilings and bulkheads, new mahogany at large mahogany cockpit, complete repaint of house and decks in Alexseal Matterhorn White with coarse antiskid, prep and repaint of mast and boom, repaint of engine in red high-temp nanoceramic paint, sanding and priming of the hull in preparation for repaint, new stainless steel diesel fuel tank and more. The boat is ideal for a new owner who is capable and willing to complete additional work including completion of prep work and repainting of hull, remount of stanchions, repair of small soft spot in hull per survey, repair of small hole at rudder per survey, remount of various hardware and further rebuild and built-out of interior woodwork, exterior brightwork (some varnish has faded since last brightwork), fitting of canvas to protect brightwork, some wiring, possible installation of alternative masthead (current Lefiel masthead sheaves are seized up but the sailboat is fully functional for sailing as blocks at masthead used instead for halyards, new Lefiel masthead sells for around $180), possible re-power (per owner's preference), etc. Sailboat comes with Volvo Penta MD7-A 13HP diesel engine with recently rebuilt starter but has some recent leakage of oil from transmission and needs work. Hull has had excellent recent prep-work/sanding and primer application above waterline in prep for repaint in Alexseal (decks and cockpit and newly built cockpit locker covers recently repainted in Alexseal with coarse antiskid).
Formerly owned by hollywood TV-star and other celebrities.
Basic sails and sailing equipment included. No roller furling, no electronics. Beautiful custom-built mahogany dodger (paid over $6,000) never yet mounted on sailboat and not included in sailboat price but available for additional $1,995. Motivated seller will consider all reasonable offers. Must go now. Really hoping for a passionate and capable new owner to enhance this beautiful old classic to its full glory and take excellent care of it (just take me out sailing in it some day in the future, please!).
