1987, 40' Mainship Nantucket Dual Cabin Yacht...
46' overall including Swim Platform with Bowsprit and Anchor Roller.
14'4" beam... traditional trawler hull... prized for it's large Salon floor plan supporting shorts steps up to the Poop Deck and Bridge... and down to fore and aft cabins.
1,100 hours (3,300 avg life) on twin 454 Crusader Engines. I cruise at 2800 (15 - 18 MPH depending on current and wind). Both engines are currently compression testing within specs. The carbs have been rebuilt and ignition is electronic. With Auto Pilot, Anchor Windless, Sirius Weather, new just about everything... as near excellent as it gets... and I am hoping to get $70,000 for her.
Here's a list of everything I've added and replaced on this boat and when she was last surveyed:
- This year she got new cutlass bearings and log shaft packings.
- The only item that hasn't recently been replaced in the last 6 years is her Norcold refrig... and Thru-Hull Gate Valves... but I my hit Gates with cutting oil then open and shut every season).
- I had her surveyed before I made the Ludington passage from Grosse Ile, MI... by Jack Mormon who said the Hull and Stringers are and in very good shape.
- The former owner installed the large screen Raymarine GPS/Plotter. But, I've added a NEMA 2000 Backbone from the central processor required for the AutoPilot install... in case I/someone wanted to add CCD Cameras and/or a FLIR (she has vintage Furuno radar).

All of the new & replacement work I've done is for esthetics, just to stay ahead of stuff before it happens, or for safety reasons.
She will operate trouble free for many years... with the only piece not replaced being the refrig... which I'm waiting on because it isn't broke why fix it?
A buyer is going to get a great, great boat.
