This is a custom built 48' long all Aluminum aft cabin motoryacht. The seller is only the second owner of the original boat.

There is a fabulous story that goes behind the custom build. If you make a visit you will here the wonderful story and see many pictures of this boats history.

It originally was a 36' fire boat from 1969 that the city of Montreal purchased to fight fires along the cities riversides. It was not soon after sold to the current seller and 2 other men who owned it together.

During the 1970's the current owner gained full ownership of the vessel and began to work on it turning it into what it is today.

He always has been a professional aluminum fabricator and welder so he put his skills to work with this project.

The boat runs great and cuts through the water so nicely. The original twin diesel Cummins engines have less than 1,000 original hours on them and fire up quickly.

The boat has a great foundation for someone looking for a large yacht and wanting to do their own modifications and interior design.

There is plenty of room inside to lay it out however you would like with an aft cabin for additional comfort, visitors, and overnighters.

This Stately Yacht has both a Flying Bridge and Cabin Helm to give you the BEST in operating flexibility.

The Upper Deck and the Aft Deck both have an open layout and plenty of room.

If you are looking for a Yacht that has a fly bridge, an aft cabin, lower in price, twin diesels, and want a project to build and customize your own ideas into then this is a great start to a dream design.

Information On Condition

During haul out last fall the vessel was in the sling heading for the cradle and the rear strap gave way and the vessel hit the hard damaging the running gear with an estimate of the damage between $12K-$30K. Its needs a lot of work to turn it into a world-class motoryacht.

The seller who has done all of the work has recently passed and the vessel is currently in probate.

The flybridge cover is only a few years old. She cruises nicely at about 19 mph and 2400rpm.

The center Garmin on the bridge works and most all gauges work. There are a few gauges that do not. The refrigerator does not work.
