Anyone in search of a new yacht tender? I’m covered, I just bought one, but you should check out this custom 13′ sand bar beaching beauty. Finished in red over white fiberglass with a red and black interior, led lighting, stereo and custom gauges. It comes rigged with a 50hp Mercury two stroke outboard with stainless steel prop. Hand-built by Dirty Bird Custom Boats in Easton Maryland this tender doesn’t come cheap – listed on eBay at $19,000 Buy it Now with the matching custom trailer.
This Classic 1999 Donzi model appears to be in near flawless condition with the owner only drawing attention to one small scratch in the hull. It’s powered by the Mercruiser 350 MPI Magnum and states that it’s been in “99.9% fresh water” so not sure what that 1/10 percent represents as far as care of the unit in saltwater. No documentation or mention of the engine hours. Done up in the desirable white hull with red racing stripes it’s offered at a Buy it Now price of $22,900 in Vincetown, New Jersey. I’ve seen similar boats sell over the past year in the mid teens, so this particular Classic may be even more classic by the time it eventually sells.
Whoever dreamt this monster up was certainly a speed demon. This 1968 Wiley v-drive is powered by a 454 cubic inch big block motor and doesn’t make any mention of horsepower, but one can assume it’s adequate as the owner claims a top speed in excess of 80 MPH. It’s nice to see a boat like this set up with a prop vs. more common jet drive. The fiberglass appears nearly perfect as does the interior. With two forward facing seats and two rear, you can even bring friends. Make sure your insurance policy is up to date as arms, legs, fingers and toes will be inches away from the driveshaft and engine pulleys in the rear facing seats. Find it on eBay with a reserve in Pompano Beach, Florida with a $1,000 starting bid.
This classic Whaler has well-documented photos and a very good description. Powered by a 115hp Mercury with a mismatched 90hp cowling this 17′ Boston Whaler should zip pretty good. The original mahogany interior looks to be in very nice condition. Find it here at $7,500 firm on Craig’s List in Minneapolis.
This fiberglass 1959 Crosby Fish and Ski boat seems to be begging for a restoration. The engine, a classic Mercury 700 6-cylinder tower of power, is said to have compression and turn over. Hull is stated to be solid, so with a little elbow grease and an interior this would be a solid summer fiberglass cruiser. Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, bidding starts at only $399 with no reserve.
