All of the nice things that we are saying about this beautiful vessel still apply EXCEPT that she now needs new risers and manifolds on both engines.
* The owner does not want to put this money into the boat and is reducing the price for an honest sale to a buyer willing the make the repairs.
This beauty has been in the family for 12 wonderful years. It's time to go. A serious family vessel with excellent accommodations down below and awesome views and room from the ample fly bridge. Well equipped above and below with excellent canvas and vinyl. New bottom job January of 2018.
Only 1,230 hrs on 454 Crusaders and 115 hrs on Westerbeke 6.5 KW generator. Engines were overhauled last year; but now the risers and manifolds need to be replaced.
* The boat is being offered "where is, as is". It may be inspected and surveyed but there can be no sea trial due to the disassembly of the starboard exhaust system.
THERE IS EXCELLENT COMPRESSION ON BOTH ENGINES: 165 - 170 psi ALL CYLINDERS.
Left engine can be started but not the right.

As you enter the main salon on the same level as the cockpit you enter a warm inviting area that has a comfortable L shaped sofa/bed to starboard and to port the soft tones of wood paneling and an entertainment center.
Down a couple of easy steps into the spacious galley with the working area to starboard and comfortable convertible table/settee to port.
There is a two burner electric burner "Princess" stove-top by SeaWard, a Norcold full size AC/DC refrigerator/freezer and a Litton microwave. There is ample storage above and below all of these and the large stainless steel sink. The sink has hot and cold pressurized water.
The basic house system is AC and 12 VDC supported by a 6.5KW Westerbeke generator. The generator has a fresh overhaul with minimum hours on it. THE GEN IS REBUILT BUT NOT INSTALLED. IT DOES COME WITH THE SALE.
There are dual 30 amp shore power cords.
There are an ample number of DC appliances and AC outlets for convenience and comfort.
The battery bank includes four batteries supported with OFF/ON protective switches and multiple "auto" bilge pumps wired "hot". Two engine batteries new Feb 2014 and the generator battery new February 2013. There is an automatic battery charger as well.
The twin, reliable Crusader 454 Cu In. engines are fresh water cooled with only 1,230 hrs each. The carburetors have both been rebuilt within this last year.
Their dependability comes from the regular and documented maintenance including inspections and changes of oil, oil and fuel filters, hoses and other critical items necessary to continuous safe operation.
As mentioned earlier, the engines have excellent compression: 165 - 170 psi in all cylinders and no other known problems. Both engines need new manifolds and risers.
The port engine can be started for demonstration (under supervision) but the starboard engine has the exhaust system partially disassembled and cannot be started.
The vessel can be inspected in the slip but no sea trial due to the engines.
