Great Weekender or Dockside Floating Condo:
We bought this boat spring 2017 on the Hudson River in New York and drove it back to Baltimore via the Atlantic Ocean, C & D Canal and the Chesapeake Bay. The engines were strong and it drove perfectly. Since then it has never left the dock in Fells Point (all year round)
and has been used instead as a floating condo to hang out and have fun in the surrounding restaurants, bars and everything else Baltimore has to offer. The marina itself features a gated parking lot, a clean temperature-controlled, year-round shower house and a very friendly
community of residents; many of which live on their boats full time. The monthly rent includes water, electric and cable. It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to historic Thames Street and we are right on the waterfront promenade that wraps around the entire Canton and Inner Harbor area. It is convenient to the stadiums and many area attractions. We have thoroughly enjoyed many days just hanging around the marina, going out to eat and
watching the sunsets from the upper bridge level as well as the 360 degree views of the harbor.
We winterized the boat at the end of 2017 and have never reversed it since then. Anyone wishing to actually take this boat out riding should first perform some mechanical work on it to include; emptying and replacing the gas, cleaning the carburetors, changing the oil and all the filters, spark plugs and examining things such as the belts. I know very little about the mechanics, but was told to expect at least $1500 to $2000 to do the above. It would be less if you can do your own repairs because much of this estimate was labor.
The interior has a full-size bed in the bedroom, a tall closet and several drawers. The salon has a couch that converts to a full-size bed and a dinette that is close to the same. There is a small bathroom with a typical boat shower that works fine. The galley has a refrigerator/freezer and a
working stove. The boat has three hatches including one with a ladder between the salon to the bridge. The AC is about five years old. It really doesn’t have a heater, so we have used a portable in the colder months. All three bilge pumps work fine. The boat is wide, which makes it very stable and limits the rocking considerably. The harbor area is well-protected from storms and winds most of the time and we have never seen the water around the marina freeze even once during the winters we have had the boat..
Brand new batteries this summer. New plumbing earlier in the year and other upgrades.
Due to COVID, I do not want to meet unnecessarily with people who are not fully prepared to buy the boat quickly and as is. At this price as-is includes that I am not going through the effort and expense of de-winterizing, fixing and demonstrating the engines. I’d be happy to share whatever else I know, so message me with any questions you
