Very well maintained classic Grand Banks 36 priced for a quick sale. Downtown Mystic dock slip for balance of 2017 season included if needed. Be sure to click on the link to the video tour to get a feel for the condition and hear the Ford Lehman diesels cold-starting. This would make a wonderful live-aboard or floating weekend summer cottage. Of course, it is also a very efficient boat for weekend adventures or extended cruising. Features include a newish air conditioning/reverse cycle heat system and new tanks are being installed in time for a spring 2018 launch. A 2015 survey gave it a clean structural bill of health and the overall condition has been improved since then thanks to conscientious owners who enjoy the pleasures of maintaining this classic wooden boat.

Excepted from an August 2015 survey performed by Ken Johnson:
"The vessel as a whole was constructed using quality workmanship and marine grade materials throughout. The main construction material in her hull is stripped plank mahogany over white oak sawn frames. The deck and superstructure is constructed of marine plywood with a teak overlay on the vessels side decks.
Her cabin sole is constructed of marine plywood with the majority of the interior finishes being bright work.
The inspection of the vessel consisted of both an in and out of the water examination. During this inspection, sections of the hull and deck were sounded with a hard mallet to determine the soundness of the structure and its laminates. A GRP-33 non-destructive moisture meter was also used in areas to check for excessive moisture in areas of the hull and deck (above the waterline only). All such readings were taken under 10-15% relative moisture, which is well within acceptable limits (unless noted below). It should be noted that due to the nature of non-destructive testing, there is no guarantee of the true condition of the laminates unless core samples are taken and lab tested. The vessels rudders, shafts, struts, propellers, and cutlass bearings were also inspected. On the deck of the vessel all deck hardware and other equipment was inspected where accessible.
On the interior portion of the vessel, all lockers were opened, floorboards removed, and drawers opened to check interior spaces and structure where accessible. No fastened or fixed joinery work or interior liners were removed and are not covered in the scope of this survey. The steering system was also inspected where accessible.
The vessels engines were run for a period of 60 minutes while on sea trial and at the dockside portion of the survey. During this time, all belts, hoses, and fluids were checked. A thermal scan of the engines heat exchanger, block, manifold, and riser was also performed utilizing a Raytech thermal scanner. All temperature readings were within normal limits unless otherwise noted below. All gages equipped on the vessel were also watched to ensure normal operation. In addition a photo tachometer was used to check the accuracy of the vessels tachometer.
A visual and metered inspection of the vessels electrical system was also performed at the time of the survey. All electrical wires, batteries, switches, and fixtures were inspected for proper installation and maintenance as required. On the AC electrical system, all outlets were checked for GFCI devices and operation as required. All electronics and navigation equipment was powered on and operated when possible.
The vessels plumbing systems were also visually inspected and operated where possible. The tankage was visually inspected where accessible. All USCG safety required equipment was also checked for approval and expiration as required.
Upon completion of the survey, the vessel “Katharine” appears in sound structural condition, needing some minor maintenance work, as is usually the case with a used vessel of this vintage. She has been used as a pleasure cruiser and has been maintained in above average condition. Based on the condition of the vessel and the equipment on board, the vessel has a current market value of approximately $49,900 as equipped, and has a replacement value (new) of $279,900. This assessment is based on the selling prices of vessels of this size, age, and comparable equipment being sold in the northeast area. The BUC used boat-pricing guide may also have been used as a guide in this assessment. In addition the “Sold Boats Data” for this manufacturer and year of production was used to determine the fair market value.
This report is submitted without prejudice and is for the exclusive use of [owner]. This report is in no way to be misconstrued as a warrantee or guarantee of the vessel or its equipment therein. This survey details the condition of the vessel at the time of the inspection and represents the undersigned’s unbiased opinion but by submitting this survey does not hold the surveyor liable for any reliance on information based on this survey."
Owner is having new tanks installed over 2017/2018 winter, not that the original tanks were showing any leaks, but everyone keeps asking if they have been replaced so consider it done in time for an April '18 launch.
