1970 GRAND BANKS CLASSIC 42' TRAWLER.  15' beam. 1 5/8" Mahogany over oak frames.  Twin 1970 Ford diesel Layman (Lehman), 1200 hours, 125hp. Accessories include Radar (Old - unhooked), Genset Onan (not working), Auto Pilot.

Owner says, "Vessel is in fair condition overall. Cabin exterior has lots of bad wood that needs replacement. Salon is in good condition (interior). Hull is very good below waterline. Some planks above waterline are starting to show some "punkyness". Hull was completely re-calked by professional yard in 2004. Refastened in 1995. Hauled and bottom paint in 2007. New full bimini top in 2006 (Some forward windows have recently started to tear at the zipper). Engines run and are in good condition with low hours. Engine room clean and oil free. Boat is DOCUMENTED and REGISTERED (which makes title transfer very easy).

"I have owned this boat ("Perseverance") since 1995. I purchased her from her 2nd owner. I lived aboard her for 5 years. Over the years I have replaced planks above and below the WL, done much cabin repairs and kept up with the maintenance as best as I could given work, family and financial realities. In 2006 - 2007 I embarked on a significant "restoration" which included much wood replacement on the cabin, painting, rot repair and other work that put her back in pretty good shape. Since then, I have been extremely busy and have been traveling extensively with only weekends available to work on her. She is at her berth behind my house, so at least I can keep an eye on her on a daily basis. My wife knows all about checking pumps, batteries and general things in order to make sure she is floating well and not in any trouble while I am out of town. The tropical climate has been taking a toll in the past 2 years, and I am rapidly falling behind with maintenance and feel that she is slipping backwards. She is currently in need of haul and bottom paint. I am seeking to sell her to someone who understands how much work a boat like this is and who can put the time, money and dedication into the commitment. I do not think I can haul her at this time since yards in South Florida are not hauling wooden boats unless they are in extremely good condition as well as insured. So this does present a problem and contributes to my need to sell my life long dream at this time. Please contact me at a.dally@att.net if you would like to seriously discuss the fate of this boat with huge potential."
