1938 Covacevich Biloxi Lugger 38 Antique in Fairhope, Alabama

Stock #214867

This is the perfect boat for a classic wooden boat lover who would like to complete the restoration and make this boat perfect for their needs. This classic Biloxi Lugger was built in 1938 by the highly respected Covacevich family in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Much of the work has already been done and the current owner can tell you what is remaining to complete it. He also has a lot of the records and history of the vessel.

According to him, this vessel won several awards in the 90s at wooden boat shows.

The 4-71 Detroit Diesel engine is in good condition and starts easily. It is ready to go. The exhaust is raw water cooled and the engine is fresh water cooled using a keel cooler. The Phasor 6KW generator is currently inoperative but is scheduled for repair shortly.

This vessel has a lot of room that you can turn into the boat for your needs. The aft cabin has four bunks, two port and two starboard with lots of locker storage. There is another bunk in the forward cabin. There is even a bunk in the pilothouse for a watch stander. You will have plenty of room to bring along family and friends.

There are several of these vessels still in use along the northern Gulf Coast where they were built. You can attend one of the wooden boat shows in the area if you want ideas for your restoration.

This vessel is ready to use right now and you can continue the restoration as you go. If this is the type of boat you are hunting, this may be the one for you.

Information On Condition

This vessel was evaluated as Average condition in a 2018 survey, so it can be used as it is. It is a good solid boat which can be made better by completing the restoration. Most of the major work has already been done. Mechanically, it is in good condition.
