    Alajuela - 48

    Contact the owner at - Click here to reveal phone number - with any questions.The boat work was completed and I put her on the water in 2018 (Alajuela hull # 45, 1976). Designed and built for solo circumnavigation. I planned to start the voyage this November. 2019 survey determined the boat price as $130,000.


    It was recent (August 21st) fire in forecabin (I left a switched-on heater). There is about 5% of forecabin interior (teak planking) is damaged by fire, the rest of the forecabin interior as well as other areas (salon, toilet, galley, machine room) are not affected by the fire but by smoke only. No structural (fiberglass) damage, the teak interior only is suffered. The engine (ISUZU diesel, 95 hours) is not damaged and in fully work conditions; the boat can be motored at any place. All sails were on the deck and were not affected by the fire. Three batteries (one cranking, two - house) as well as a charger work normal. All electric lines (DC and AC) are workable. The boat is 100% operable and you can go to Hawaii next day after purchase if you are OK with smell inside.

    I underlain one more time: the damage is not serious and did NOT affect such main boat structures like engine, rigging, sails. The fiberglass of the hull is NOT affected by the fire because had protective layer of teak planking inside. People send me e-mails with assumptions regarding influence of fire to fiberglass. Instead making that assumptions why do not just come on the boat and see what's happened. I have nothing to hide. I could fix everything on the boat for 2 or 3 months but I have a health issue now.

    Prehistory of the boat
    In time of purchase (September 2015) the hull was completely empty with only interior completed. Since its manufacturing in 1976, the hull had been staying 39 years on a cradle on dry boatyard in Costa Mesa under a shelter. Because being sheltered, there was no any damage from sun or rain. I found the hull conditions excellent. The boat has NEVER been on the water until August 2018 when rest of the work has been done and I put her on the water in Long Beach, CA. That is the reason why I advertised the boat as completed in 2018. I included a few pictures from that time

    Main task was to build a bulletproof boat for solo circumnavigation. It meant that only high quality materials and services have been used.Interior. High quality teak planks were are for interior. Teak planking made inside space nice and cozy, especially at night time.Full specs available upon request....Read full description
