1978 Gibson 42 House in Saint Paul, Minnesota

Stock #231604

This 1978 Gibson can be your full-time home on the water. The current owner has enjoyed entertaining family and guests on her, or you could also offer an Air BNB experience to travelers wanting to sleep on the grand Mississippi.

Gibson's are incredibly well-built boats to last generations. This is a solid boat, and whole deck was replaced and coated with a 3 part system from Neptune. The full-size galley and outdoor patio and decks make her anyone's entertaining dream.

She easily sleeps 4 to 6, and more if they are your grandkids excited to be on an air mattress to spend memorable summer nights with you.

Full-size shower and head are also huge plus. Get your offer in today, she will not last long.

Information On Condition

Per the Seller: This 1978 Gibson is in good running order. She is reliable to get you out on the water for the day.

Properly winterized every winter season, and having been a northern boat is really only half her age.

The depth finder transducer needs to be replaced and the water heater needs a new element.

The generator needs tune-up, current sellers have not used it.
