1962 Monk 31 Antique in Rockport, Texas

Stock #024251

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Only 3 owners in 55 years!

This exceptional Red Cedar boat by Ed Monk INC., is truly a classic.

The current owner ( who has owned her the past 19 years ) is working on her now.....the hull was repainted 2 years ago. The boat was recently hauled out and all leaks repaired. She is now tight as a drum. There is zero wood rot because the Red Cedar planks are virtually impervious. She is being completely repainted to restore her to her former glory days. After the exterior is completed, the interior mahogany and other luxury woods will be sanded and re-varnished.

The boat is a perfect candidate for a week-end live aboard. With the slip docking rent at $222/mo with water and electricity included, this glorious MONK is your floating weekend cottage. Moored within walking distance of Charlotte Plummer's Restaurant, The Boiling Pot, Who-Dat?, and other fine restaurants. Plenty of shopping and a museum is just minutes away!

Think about it..........a one day hotel stay costs about the same as a month on the water in this Monk classic cruiser..

Ed Monk designed mostly fish-boats, runabouts, tugs and power yachts that were used on the Pacific coast and built to withstand the rough waters between California and Alaska. A classic Ed Monk design reported to be built with red cedar which has a very high strength to weight ratio and a high natural resistance to decay and mildew. It has teak decks and classic appliances in the Galley. This boat turns turn heads every time she goes out, with a little TLC she would win awards at boat shows. Hard to find a 1962 boat that has had only three owners!! The listing also includes a 1989 YAMAHA Waverunner!

Dinghy included: 9' Fiberglass

Information On Condition

Overall condition is good to very good. Nice live-aboard boat......the red-cedar hull is rock solid, and heavy. Recently refreshed paint, bottom also repainted (see pics) A very economical 455 V-8 low compression engine is reported to burn about 3 GPH at 1500 RPM's cruisng speed. Teak decks, new oil ---varnsh and paint freshened---9 ft catamaran unsinkable dingy on site ---new Coast Guard Documentation & new Texas tags! Slip Available for $215 per month under $10/month for electricity. Live-Aboard fee believed to be additional $110/month. Super Reasonable. NOTE on Location: The Rockport area is historically protected from sustaining storm damage and appears to be a true safe haven on the coast. Possibly the safest place to be on the Texas coast!

This classic MONK 31 is getting the "once over" by the seller. He is sanding, painting and caulking, and or refinishing all wood surfaces.

Of particular note is the maintenance work being completed on the interior..........the lovely mahogany cabinetry and drawers are getting a freshening and new varnish.

Within a few weeks, this craft will look similar to its earlier look.

The engine starter is scheduled to be replaced, and the engine is scheduled for an overall refreshing to be sure it is in top condition.

One thing you might not know.......the engine is protected by a closed loop cooling system. Only the solid cast-iron exhaust manifold sees sea water. The mufflers are solid 3" copper pipes causing the purr of the 455V8 to sound file a finely tuned Harley.

By the way........there owner has an extra bronze 4 blade propeller that stays with this boat.

As of August 2016 the boat decks and sides are being sanded, repainted, and clear wood surfaces are being sanded and re-varnished including Cabinets

As of August 2016 the engine starter is being replaced with a new one, and general maintenance is being performed on the engine. Batteries checked...
