FOR SALE WE HAVE OUR 1980 BRISTOL 42 TRAWLER .
WE PURCHASED "KAYLA JANE" AROUND 18 MONTHS AGO WITH THE INTENTION OF CLEANING HER UP . LAUNCHING HER AND THEN BRINGING HER BACK TO ANNAPOLIS MARYLAND WHERE WE WOULD DO SOME COSMETIC UPGRADES AND THEN PUT HER BACK ON THE RETAIL MARKET FOR AROUND $65. 00 .
UNFORTUNATELY 18 MONTHS LATER SHE IS STILL SITTING ON THE HARD IN WOODBRIDGE VIRGINIA AND I HAVE NOT DONE MUCH OTHER THAN PAY STORAGE SO AFTER A LITTLE REALITY CHECK I DECIDED IT IS TIME TO SELL HER TO SOMEONE WHO CAN EITHER LIVEABOARD OR CLEAN HER UP TO HER FORMER GLORY .
I WILL DO MY BEST TO OUTLAY EVERYTHING BELOW SO YOU GET A CLEAR IDEA OF HER CURRENT CONDITION WITH THIS SAID PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS IS MY OPINION .
TO START WITH AND A LITTLE BACKGROUND INFORMATION WE RUN A SMALL MARINA AND DABBLE IN BUYING AND SELLING BOATS AS YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE FROM MY FEEDBACK . THE MAIN REASON I HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING WITH "KAYLA JANE" IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT SHE IS NOT AT MY MARINA AND I KEEP PUTTING THINGS OFF AS I HAVE MY HANDS FULL WITH A 58FT HATTERAS PROJECT I AM CURRENTLY BUSY WITH .
I PURCHASED "KAYLA JANE" AROUND 18 MONTHS AGO AFTER SHE HAD TAKEN ON WATER IN HER FRONT CABIN DUE TO AN A/C HOSE THAT CAME LOOSE AND SHE STARTED TO LEAK . SHE WENT NOSE DOWN AROUND 12 TO 16 INCHES IN THE FRONT CABIN ONLY .
TO BE VERY CLEAR SHE DID NOT SINK NOR DID THE ENGINE OR BATTERIES OR GENERATOR GET WET OR I WOULD NOT HAVE PURCHASED HER MYSELF .
THERE ARE NO VISIBLE SIGNS OF ANY WATER INTRUSION AND IF I DID NOT TELL YOU . I DO NOT BELIEVE YOU WOULD KNOW . THAT BEING SAID I AM NOT TRYING TO HIDE ANYTHING HERE SO I DON'T SEE WHY I WOULD NOT DISCLOSE IT . I AM SURE A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD NOT BUT THAT IS NOT HOW WE OPERATE .
THE HULL BELOW THE WATERLINE IS SOLID WITH NO VISIBLE BLISTERS . THE SHAFTS ARE BOTH STRAIGHT . WHEELS / PROPELLERS ARE BOTH IN GOOD CONDITION . BOTH RUDDERS ARE STRAIGHT .
ABOVE THE WATERLINE THE HULL SIDES SHOW WELL . I WOULD SAY THAT THE BOAT HAS BEEN PAINTED AT SOME POINT WITH AWLGRIP AS THE HULL SIDES ARE VERY CLEAN FOR HER AGE . I DO THINK THAT IT WOULD LOOK A LOT CLEANER WITH A GOOD WASH .
THERE IS AROUND 2FT OF DAMAGE TO THE WOODEN/TEAK RUB RAIL ON THE STARBOARD SIDE . THE PIECE IS CRACKED AND CAN BE SCARFED / PUT BACK TOGETHER WITH SOME EPOXY . I HAD A QUOTE OF $400 TO DO THAT .
UP ON DECK SHE IS SOLID UNDERFOOT . I DID NOT DETECT ANY SOFT SPOTS . I WILL SAY IT IS DIRTY AS IT HAS BEEN STANDING BEHIND A TREE ON LAND FOR THE LAST YEAR . I HAVE NOT ATTEMPTED TO CLEAN HER SO WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET . AGAIN A GOOD THOROUGH CLEANING WITH SOAP . WATER AND BLEACH WOULD MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN HER OUTWARD APPEARANCE .
THERE IS A GOOD SIZE PLOW ANCHOR ON HER BOW AS PICTURED WITH CHAIN AND RODE AS WELL AS A WINDLASS .
THE BRIGHTWORK / WOOD WORK COULD STAND TO BE SANDED AND REFINISHED OR LEFT NATURAL . ONE OF THE NICE FEATURES THAT SETS A BRISTOL APART FROM THE CHEAPER TRAWLERS LIKE THE MARINE TRADERS ARE THE LITTLE THINGS LIKE THE STANTIONS BEING MADE OF BRASS . IF YOU WANT TO SPEND THE TIME YOU COULD POLISH THEM ALL UP . THE NAVIGATION LIGHTS ARE ALL BRASS AND REALLY LOOK GOOD TOO.
THERE ARE NEWER S/S DAVITS THAT HAVE BEEN MOUNTED ABOVE THE SWIM PLATFORM AS PICTURED . A S/S BARBEQUE ON THE BACK DECK AND AT THE UPPER HELM STATION EXTRA SEATING WITH BUILT IN STORAGE WHICH I CURRENTLY HAS PFD'S IN AS WELL AS SOME OTHER ODDS AND ENDS .
THE INSIDE SHOWS WELL . THERE ARE SOME STAINS AROUND THE WINDOWS FROM WATER STARTING TO INTRUDE BUT THEY ARE NOT ALL ROTTED OUT LIKE A LOT OF OLDER TRAWLERS DO . IT APPEARS THAT THE WINDOW ISSUES HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED AND AS SUCH SHE IS NOT LEAKING THROUGH THE WINDOWS ANYMORE .
PERSONALLY I WOULD PAINT SOME OF THE MARINE PLY WHITE AND LEAVE ALL THE TEAK TRIM . IT CREATES A NICE CONTRAST BUT THAT IS MY OPINION OBVIOUSLY .
YOU WILL BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY THE AMOUNT OF INTERIOR ROOM . THE SALON AREA IS VERY SPACIOUS AND WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET . ALL FLAT SCREEN TV'S CONVEY WITH THE BOAT IN THE SALE . INTERIOR CUSHIONS IN THE SALON ARE IN GOOD SHAPE .
THERE ARE TWO HEADS / BATHROOMS ON THE BOAT . ONE IN THE FORWARD CABIN AND ONE IN THE AFT CABIN WHICH HAS A NICE SITTING DESK AREA AS WELL AS A QUEEN SIZE BED ALTHOUGH THE CURRENT MATTRESS IS NOT A QUEEN IF YOU REPLACE THE MATTRESS IT CAN FIT A QUEEN SIZE MATTRESS .
AS FOR ENGINES SHE IS POWERED BY 2 DETROIT DIESELS WITH A WESTERBEKE GENERATOR . ALL THREE WERE WINTERIZED PROFESSIONALLY 18 MONTHS AGO . I DID TURN OVER BOTH ENGINES AND GENERATOR 3 WEEKS AGO TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE NOT STUCK FROM STANDING . ALL 3 TURN OVER AS THEY SHOULD .
I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT I THINK YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BUY NEW BATTERIES AT THIS POINT . THEY MAY HOLD A CHARGE BUT IN MY EXPERIENCE AFTER STANDING FOR 18 MONTHS THEY MOST LIKELY WONT . EXPECT THE WORST AND THEN YOU MAY BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED .
BOTH SETS OF INSTRUMENT PANELS HAVE BEEN REPLACED ON BOTH THE UPPER AND LOWER HELM STATIONS .
ANOTHER THING TO POINT OUT IS THE AMOUNT OF SPACE IN THE ENGINE ROOM . YOU CAN EASILY WALK AROUND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES . THERE IS A NEWER LARGER WATER HEATER AND A XANTREX INVERTER.
THERE ARE A LOT OF SPARE PARTS THROUGHOUT THE BOAT . EXTRA NAV LIGHTS . PAINT THINNERS PAINT BOAT PARTS . A LOT OF ENGINE SPARES BY THAT I MEAN A BIG PLASTIC TOTE FULL OF FILTERS ETC AS WELL AS EXTRA HOSES .
THE BOAT WAS BEING LIVED ABOARD BY A RETIRED US MARINE PRIOR TO MY PURCHASING IT AND AS SUCH I CAN SEE HE HAS KEPT A LOT OFF EXTRA SUPPLIES TO BE THE BOAT WELL MAINTAINED . I AM LEAVING EVERYTHING ON BOARD .
ALL ELECTRONICS PICTURED ARE INCLUDED . THERE IS A GARMIN GPS RADAR . VHF RADIO AT THE UPPER AND LOWER CONTROL STATIONS A LORAN SYSTEM NOW OUT OF DATE THE GARMIN UNIT IS A LOT NEWER AND I SOUND A $3500 WEST MARINE RECIEPT WHICH WAS FOR ALL THE UPDATED ELECTRONICS WHICH APPEAR TO BE AROUND 5 YEARS OLD .
I AM NOT SURE WHAT ELSE TO ADD AT THIS POINT . WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET . IF YOU BUY THE BOAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO ARRANGE TO HAVE IT MOVED SOONER THAN LATER IF YOU WANT TO TAKE IT AWAY BY WATER THIS YEAR AS IT IS LIABLE TO GET BLOCKED IN FOR WINTER STORAGE BY EARLY DECEMBER . OTHERWISE YOU CAN PAY THE WINTER STORAGE RATE WHICH IS AROUND $1250 I BELIEVE WHICH WILL KEEP IT THERE UNTIL APRIL 1 2017 VERY REASONABLE AND A SAFE YARD WITH GOOD SECURITY AS WELL .
WE ARE HOPING TO GET PAID IN CASH FOR THE BOAT BUT ARE NOT APPOSED TO PARTIAL TRADES . SMALLER LATER MODEL BOATS . NO SMALL SAILBOATS SORRY . EXOTIC OR CLASSIC CARS ( PLEASE KEEP IN MIND YOUR CUTLASS CIERA MAY BE A VALUABLE CLASSIC TO YOU BUT TO ME IT IS GOOD RELIABLE TRANSPORTATION SO DON'T BE OFFENDED IF I AM NOT INTERESTED IN TRADING ) GOLD BARS ALWAYS WELCOME TO !
SHE IS A U. S. C. G. DOCUMENTED VESSEL .
LASTLY IF YOU NEED TO CHECK WITH YOUR RABBI . PRIEST . GURU . SPIRITUAL ADVISOR CURRENT WIFE . FORMER WIFE . IRLFRIEND OR WHOMEVER PLEASE DO SO BEFORE MAKING AN OFFER OR PLACING A BID . WE ARE A SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS AND I RELY ON BEING PAID IN ORDER TO PAY OUR STAFF SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL NECESSARY FUNDS AVAILABLE BEFORE BIDDING . I AM SORRY TO HAVE TO STATE THE OBVIOUS BUT YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MANY PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND HOW EBAY WORKS .
TO END WE DO NOT NEED TO SELL "KAYLA JANE " I WOULD LIKE TO BUT AM NOT GOING TO ENTERTAIN ANY LOW BALL OFFERS SO NO NEED TO WASTE YOUR TIME OR MINE . IF WE DON'T GET A REASONABLE OFFER I WILL PAY THE WINTER STORAGE AND LOOK AT MOVING FORWARD WITH HER NEXT YEAR MYSELF .
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO E-MAIL OR CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS . I AM AWAY AND WILL BE BACK NEXT WEEK . IF I DON'T ANSWER YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE AND I WILL RETURN YOUR CALL.
THANKS MATT
