Used Boats

USA449 For Sale
Details

Price: $24,999
Location: Marin County, California
Email: zks@mthamilton.us

Description:
This boat is in exceptional condition. It has spent the past 5 years sitting covered in Marin County, CA. Before that it was stored in the Melges factory - we were told. We just spent the better part of a month cleaning, updating it up for the next year’s racing. It has multiple single use North Sails: jibs, mains, and kites. We just added a new kite, main, and 2 jibs. There is also one set of North practice white sails. The sail inventory includes (2) J zero and (2) J 7 jibs. Two competitive sets – each used for one regatta. The boat has everything ready to compete this year in Canada. We have Lasered the blades, it is certified, short stanchions, boom cover, new tires, rebuilt vang pneumatics, serviced newer 2.3 Honda, serviced wheel bearings, added additional equipment, and serviced/replaced blocks that were not working properly. It has lots of Hutchinson go fast equipment aboard. It has two trailer boxes. The boat was maintained by Melges for most of its history. You will notice that when you see the lack of wear and tear on the boat. The deck looks almost unused. It is a very nice fast boat carrying appropriate weight correctors. The speed and accomplishment history on this boat is well known. It is very competitive – and at a reasonable price. I sold my other Melges (725), to acquire a lower numbered Melges. The plan worked well - until my wife understood the number of boats on hand and the time requirements. Hence the abrupt change in plans. I have never sailed the boat. The plans changed that drastically. If at all possible my hope was to keep it in the SF Bay Area. Price accommodations will be given for local SF ownership and a participation in SF Bay racing commitment. Transportation to any of the forthcoming events in the Pacific Northwest or Canada can be arranged. Please contact Z via phone at 408-316-1091, or on email.
