1962 Bates wooden lobster boat restored Lobster downeast wooden


Winthrop,MA,United States

  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details


This sweetheart of a wooden downeast lobster boat has been with the same owner for the last 26 years. She has a full keel with skeg. She was restored in 1984 where she was made and in 2004 went back to Maine for an update. The owner has all the details and all service records. The hull is solid cedar while topsides and decks are fiberglass. She is a most attractive boat and gets raves wherever she goes. The boat needs engine work. It needs a water pump FWC (very easy to reach and change). The engine needs a timing belt and gear. The owner said the engine doesn't need to be pulled. This engine (4cyl. Volvo Penta gas) was brand new in 1990. Parts are readily available. We feel the boat would fetch a considerable amount more than the asking price if the engine was running. Please contact us for a peek at this lovely Maine built boat. We will present all offers immediately to the owner. He is also concerned about storing this boat for the winter. This might be your lucky day!    ON SEPT.1, WE REDUCED THE PRICE BY $2000!!!!!.  THE OWNER NEEDS TO MOVE ON.  HE ADVISED US TO GET AN OFFER.  WE ARE DOING WHAT WE WERE TOLD.....ALL AND ANY OFFERS WILL BE IMMEDIATELY PRESENTED TO HIM.  PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO MAKE AN OFFER.
