She’s a PIP!

Like an old Harley or and 36 Ford Woodie, it takes a special breed to own, appreciate and revere real art in motion and this baby is no exception. “Hotel California”, as she is aptly named is just such an example of traditional craftsmanship and quality.

Stand perched in her bully pulpit forward of the anchor and take the spray in your face, or stand proud on the flying bridge master of all you survey…flip burgers on the aft deck or lounge in style in the grand salon,…it’s all here for the taking!

Why would anyone buy a darn CONDO at the beach when you can have it all with a boat!!!!

Retire aboard the Hotel California!

PUT some fun in your life!

Now when you’re not lazing around getting dock sour, you can be Offshore Cruising with a design that can take a blow or inter-coastal putting with elegant lines, this lady has it all!

Our 1973 Grand Banks, has been extensively overhauled and professionally maintained to a high standard making her a real bargain for the price of only $89,950.00 Newer,… less classic boats will cost twice as much and NOT afford you, any of this boats grace.

Come aboard.

Her engine room is spotless as well as spacious and both Ford diesels have less than 850 hours.

THAT’S RIGHT….fresh as daisies!

They were serviced less than 90 days ago, all impellers, flushes and oils/filters,…etc… preparing her for the cruise from Portland south to San Diego.

Forward V berth with new coverings and large shower/head combo make this stateroom perfect for guests, grandkids and alike.

It has a large overhead hatch and side lights for plenty of sea air and comfort.

The Grand Salon, has all teak wood restored to original glory with Ship’s clock/ Chime and Barometer,.. new headliners and settee..

The room has an additional companionway going up and out onto the rear deck for great circulation and convenience.

That’s the deal…. $89,950.00 USD and she’s yours!

Come take a look… At least consider her… Some folks will say a wood boat is too much up-keep,.. or they leak or rot or any number of such maladies that Noah, Columbus or Mike Fink, “King of the Keel boats’s would have dealt with.

Why,..heck, it’s only 4,000 years of technology,… that work’s and FLOATS! “And remember, friends don’t let friends drive GLASS boats!” Come to Portland, and see a beauty.
