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. Motorsailer yacht; custom built for deep water cruising. Three layered hull; saturated grain balsa core. Hull and Deck were laid up and built by Columbia and designed by world renowned Bill Tripp. Then it was custom finished by Marine Engineering in 1980 and set sail for the first voyage.

Lloyd's of London Rated the boat for unlimited range.

She has sailed all over the Caribbean then sailed back to California and lived aboard and cruised the California coast for about ten years

The boat was getting tired and starting to show usage problems. The boat was hauled to hard, and approximately $240,000 was spent on making the boat new again.

The engine was sent back to Detroit Diesel, and it was completely overhauled and replaced except the crankshaft and main block.

She needs about $50,000 invested to complete this custom Columbia classic.

The Majority of the expense is for purchasing a new sail and to choose electronics.

A bit more history:

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; they did not make further south.

She goes through weather very well and 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 full showers, propane or electric galley; salon and galley combined. Each stateroom has a sink with hot and cold water. There is a work bench and storage for misc. parts, etc.

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

A newly rebuilt engine and propulsion, new Northern light gen set, New ports lights, Maytag washer and dryer, new tanks and new stainless deck hardware

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 touches need to be completed before sailing again.

Engine mounted on standard engine silencing mounts. Driveshaft with u joints installed between the engine and the propeller shaft to make the engine quieter.

Deck reworked to move the life line stanchions off the deck to the new stainless toe rail. No more toe stomping at night.

The deck house was reinforced with additional fiberglass to prevent any window leakage problem in heavy rain or weather.

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

The stainless rigging needs to be replaced and new sails would be a wise investment. - New Fiberglass and 5 coats of gelcoat since hull out.

The boat was hauled out and an intensive retrofit was done to restore to better than new. The redesigned propeller location is back by the rudder.
