1983 Gibson 42 House in Polk City, Iowa

Stock #174165

Looking for a houseboat and ready for a project? This Gibson still has many years of life in her but she is NOT a turn-key vessel.

The owner used her in 2018 as a floating condo at their summer lake getaway. Still functional in that respect, she was not operated and did not leave her mooring in 2018.

The seller states that both engines are known to need mechanical attention to be operational. It is believed that both are close to being operational and will likely only require routine maintenance/repairs to function. The outdrives will likely require some routine maintenance as well.

Systems-wise, a small amount of attention is likely to be required of the electrical system. As for the plumbing, is not functional and new lines need to be installed. The tanks are in place.

The interior is functional but due for a makeover. Wipe the slate of the canvas clean and make this Gibson your own with your own personal touches and enjoy her for years to come.

There is a trailer available for this vessel and will be included with the sale, although outside of the transaction with POP until proof of ownership documentation is obtained.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by POP Yachts.
