1967 Custom Built Blount 60 Converted Research Vessel Motoryacht in Manitowoc, Wisconsin

Stock #215811

An amazing ship with an important historic mission...this Blount 60 was used as a research vessel, and then used as a long-range pleasure cruiser.

Her owner purchased the boat in Rhode Island and cruised her via the St Lawrence through the Great Lakes to her current berth on the West shore of Lake Michigan.

Currently registered as a recreational vessel, the Blount's single diesel, 4 staterooms, and two diesel generators make her an efficient dive or fishing boat, or she can be refitted for a live-aboard or long-range cruiser.

USCG Documented:
NRT = 30
GRT = 41

Her deckhouse is approximately 12' x 8' and sits above 4 staterooms (2 w/ double size and 2 w/ single size berths). Half-wall steel comprises the port and starboard sides of the deckhouse with plywood upper sides and aft wall. A massive bridge forward of the deckhouse is raised. Under the bridge is a large galley currently equipped with refrigerator and microwave.

Mounted in the bridge are two vintage Raytheon Mariner Pathfinder units. The owner purchased Garmin GPS Chartplotter and Radar in 2012 which are being included with the boat.

The ship's crab pot davit and winch are mounted to the aft deck.
