Bone Yard Boats features FREE BOATS in nearly every issue -- actually I can't think of an issue without FREE BOATS.

This is not a complete list of FREE boats.

June 2012

FREE BOAT: 1960 CHRIS CRAFT SEA SKIFF 32'

UPDATE 6/25/12:  "About 5 years ago, this boat was sitting on a guy's lot and he was going to chain saw it. I had it towed to my farm.  I don't have the time or the expertise to deal with it. First person to take her owns her. It's free..."  [4 photos]  <PICS+INFO>


Spring 2012 (Issue No. 55)

FREE BOAT: 1952 CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER 34'

"There is a large cockpit area that is partially covered by a hard top.  The bottom is in decent shape except for some oil soaked planks underneath the engine area. ...a lot of duplicate parts as this boat came with an identical parts boat... 2 original engines and 2 parts engines..."   [7 photos]  <PICS+INFO>


Spring 2012 (Issue No. 55)

FREE BOAT:  1973 CHRIS CRAFT CATALINA 28'

She's back!  Originally listed in Summer 2009, this CC Catalina needs a new home asap.  Fiberglass hull, twin inboard 307ci engines, head, and galley with AC/DC fridge. Owner says, "One of only fifty made but will need a full restoration before it'll be even close to usable..." [7 photos]  <PICS+INFO>


Spring 2012 (Issue No. 55)

FREE BOAT:  1966 PACEMAKER EXPRESS 31'

This Pacemaker is still in need of a new home, and her situation is becoming more dire. In an April email, the boat owner lamented "I've got to give it one last push to find a home for this boat. Otherwise, I'm going to have to destroy it. I can't keep paying for storage. Can you try one more time?" She's built with mahogany planking on oak frames and has a single 350 CI Crusader. According to the owner, "This is a project boat that will take some time to complete, but will be well worth it in the end."  [10 photos]  <PICS+INFO>





Some free boats in every issue -- so far anyway.

FREE BOAT:  1957 CHRIS CRAFT SEA SKIFF 35'

Originally listed in Fall 2011 for $5500, now asking "free to a good home."  Owner says, "This is not an old rotten boat in a field. It is in the water and ready to start and go cruising. Twin 283s that run very well..."  [3 photos]  <PICS+INFO>

FREE BOAT: 1955 MALAR 25 SKERRY CRUISER 33'

Skerry

"The Malar 25 is what is called a Skerry Cruiser built to sail the large inland lake in Sweden called Lake Malaren. It is a beautiful, great sailing boat with a design that I would say is somewhat between an IOD and a Dragon. She was built in 1955 in Kungsors, Sweden, by Oscar Schelin who was also the designer..."  [2 photos]  <PICS+INFO>
