1977 Custom Columbia 56 Motorsailer in Costa Mesa, California

Stock #132124

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

Current refitted to better than new, Ketch rigged 56 ft motor sailer yacht custom built for deep water cruising. Epoxy saturated end grain Balsa core Hull and Deck was laid up and built by Columbia and custom finished by Marine Engineering in 1980 and set sail for the first voyage.

Marine Engineering was a designer of innovative boats and systems. We installed and created many new innovations to make Lusty a very safe, easy to sail and comfortable blue water cruising Yacht.

She is Lloyd's of London rated the boat for unlimited range.

She was sailed back to California and lived aboard and cruised the California coast for about ten years

We had zero problems with the boat in all our travels
The boat was getting tired and starting to show usage problems. The boat was hauled and we spent about $240,000 thus far making the boat new again.She needs about $50,000 more work invested to complete this custom Columbia classic. Majority of expense is for purchasing a new sail and to choose electronics

A bit more history:

Lusty was constructed by the Marine Engineering Company. Owner was doing systems design for boat builder and boat owner that wanted to improve their boats. I hired two full time very experienced boat builders. One was and now again is a manager and worker at large boat manufacturing company. The second worker was and is still the best fiberglass fabricator in this area. He is now building large custom yachts for a boat manufacturing company.

The full construction took a little over three years of full time work to complete the yacht.The boat was used for cruising in the Caribbean and pacific coastal waters.
In the beginning, the plan was to cruise without problems to the South Pacific. Australia and New Zealand, but the Caribbean was so nice, we did not make further south.

Lusty goes through weather very well and we rode out four hurricanes in the Caribbean without a problem.

The boat is designed to have all the heavy tankage and equipment below the water line. Along with the 22,000 pounds of lead in the keel, makes the boat very stable and comfortable.

She has the following accommodations:

Three staterooms, two heads and showers, propane or electric galley Tons of storage Salon and galley combined. Each stateroom has a sink with hot and cold water. This is a work bench and storage for misc. parts and etc.

Conventional sails designed for the average sailor to handle but she is appreciated more by the experienced sailor.

All new engine and propulsion, new Northern light gen set, New ports lights, Maytag washer and dryer, new tanks, new stainless deck hardware, new anchor system and 600 ft of 3/8 chain, new everything.

The current survey suggested sale price is about $290,000. Replacement cost is 930,000 The boat is priced for rapid sale at a good market value price and final touch need to be completed prior to sailing again.

That is some of the rework The finish and trim on the interior is not finished. The electrical needs to be reconnected and the engine controls installed.

New electronics need to be selected and installed. The stainless rigging needs to be replaced and New sails would be a wise investment.

The boat was hauled out and a very intensive retrofit was done to restore the boat to better than new redesigned propeller location.
