1977 SR 31 For Sale in Key Largo

https://www.boattrader.com/boat/1977...maran-8037162/

I like how in the forecastle head area the builder just left the epoxy (or some kind of clear preservative) over the ply. I wish more of the SRs kept that look on the inside.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

There's what seems to be a really nice Searunner 40 for sale listed in Latitude 38 classy classifieds. The boat is located in Puerto Vallarta and owned by a live-aboard couple that have owned 3 Searunners over the past 30 yrs.

Thanks for that. We had two Searunners and a few other sailboats over 40 years. At 65 years old I went looking for a converted workboat. This is a yacht (was not a conversion) with a workboat soul. 58' passage maker, built 1952. The designer William Garden is highly respected, kinda like Jim Brown, a cult following. At 61 tons displacement, she carries 3,200 gallons of diesel and has a 4,500 mile range. 800 gals. water. Diesel fired hydronic heat stem to stern and in the bilge. On and on. She's not a rescue project. Some rich guy did a $750K + re-fit in 2002. So is like a 18 year old boat systems wise. I pretty much just gotta maintain her. All good, I know non of this has anything to do with Searunners (except I hung out a lot here) Having fun!

i emailed John Marples and here is his reply about the above extension on a Searunner 40:

Jon, I have no knowledge of this boat. To Jim and I, it has been "owner improved", which rarely does good. I cannot imagine how a stern drive would work on a boat with an outboard rudder. John

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

WILDERNESS status report:

It's been a little more than a month from my last check-in. The holidays are over, the weather is back to warm and dry, and the craziness of the world continues unabated. My new mast and rig are sitting on cradles. The yard had some issues of their own, having to close down for structural repairs, then today, when we wheeled the mast into the yard, we were told that the crane is now busted, and it might be two more weeks before it can be stepped. Oh well......

On the other hand, it gives me more time to finish off the cockpit projects. I completed most of the final painting, built new centerboard covers, built a brand new mast step with a built in roller for the centerboard control. It leads the centerboard pull-down (with heavy duty rubber bungee) to a block inside the aft end of the cockpit trunk, then forward to an inverted bow roller attached to the aft end of the mast step, then it leads upward to a Spinlock line clutch to lock it in position, then up to the mainsheet winch below the gooseneck and within arm's length of the helm wheel. I'll be sending photos when it's all hooked up. This is a big deal for me because, never before, I will have full and immediate control of the centerboard. In previous posts I detailed the new centerboard, which will go in when I haul out. Now, it's a full system. Very exciting, and, I believe, unique to Searunners.

I'll be sending detail photos of the mast equipment, again, results of a lifetime of experience with my boat and others I've rigged over the years. It's really cool stuff that I'm eager to put to work when I sail over the horizon in coming months.

So, in the next two weeks of waiting for stepping the mast, I will get the last of the nonskid on the cockpit and cabintop, rig the new mainsheet traveller, and complete the overhaul of the steering system and re-leather the steering wheel. Never a dull moment.

i am looking forward to see what you are describing. Better ways to rig a Searunner are always appreciated.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

A heads up and a question


Due to changed job circumstances (less time off unfortunately) I want to give my 2001 Searunner 40 into the next loving hands so it will be further used for it's intended purpose to sail oceans and not sit around in storage. The boat is currently in NW-Panama (beautiful unspoiled cruising are) and I sailed her down there from the Pacific NW. She is not a project boat but ready to sail as is.

Apart from the classifieds in this forum where would you suggest to advertise here? For sites like Yachtworld one needs a broker to advertise and I might go that way but wanted to hear opinions first what would be the best route.

Cheers and fair winds

Wolff-R.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Here the preliminary sales post in the classified section. Once I am back at the boat end of this month I can take more pictures, videos etc.

I hope someone will be interested in continue the adventures as I would hate to see here sitting around a yard for most of the time.



Cheers

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Her name is Further. She is the boat i almost bot, went as far as making a down payment, but then had dreams of disaster at sea for three nights consecutively, so i backed out of the deal.





Look at that damage to the bow of the hull. Did they hit something? Or was there weakness in the underlying structure?

There was a prospective buyer coming to look at her in Maryland in January. Perhaps they bot her and were taking her south.
