1975 Brownell 50 Sportfish

A classic 1975 Brownell 50 custom sportfish is being offered for sale designed by New England legend Eldridge McGuinness. The current owner - only her second - has tastefully restored this beauty with an open checkbook to the tune of $700,000, possessing the standards and designs of today while keeping the original class and sophistication intact. Featuring a three-layer hull constructed with tongue-and-grove-laid Honduran Mahogany sandwiched with epoxy, the Detroit Diesel power allows an effortless cruise at 20 knots with a top speed of 26 knots. This boat is perfect for long outings and would make an excellent floating home away from home. She's set up to cruise anywhere, in any weather. Unfortunately due to dockage constraints, the owner must down-size. Will consider trade on 30-foot-class center console or similar size express sportfish. 

This boat is easy to show, at Bahia Mar
