1980 Down East 42 Pilothouse in Titusville, Florida

Stock #140179

This 1980 Down East 42 is just waiting for a new owner to finish the refurbishment that has been started to bring it back to a classic cruising boat. This boat was sailed from Key West to its new location by the owner when he bought the boat.

The initial pictures in the gallery are from the boat when it was purchased. The following pictures show the current condition.

The owner was in the middle of a major refurbishment when a change in personal circumstances meant that he could not complete it as planned. There are new items purchased and ready to be fitted.

The mast is currently at the owner's residence for new wiring and lights to be installed.

The owner has already replaced many items including a Radar arch with new Garmin Radar, re-bedded or replaced the windows, replaced all the lights with bi-lights (red and white), new Ritchie compass, new 6-gallon water heater, new composting toilet, and replaced large parts of the headliner.

The custom fiberglass console over the entryway has been started and will need to be completed. The grab rails are ready to be refitted on deck.
The sails seem to be in decent shape with a loose foot main and hanked on Jib. There are 3 anchors - 2 Plough and 1 Danforth.

There are 2 Helm Stations, and both seem to be in working condition. The cockpit binnacle is being rebuilt and houses a new Ritchie compass, and will have the Chartplotter, Depthfinder, Autopilot, and VHF mounted.

Down below there are 2 seating areas that convert to dining or berths, the Helm Station, the Galley to Starboard, a guest quarters to Port and the Captains berth forward. The head to Port can be accessed either from the companionway or the forward cabin.

The 10.5" Walker Bay dinghy and 2006 Yamaha 4 STR 4HP outboard are included. The dinghy trailer IS NOT included.

Dinghy included: 10.5" Walker Bay with Yamaha 2006 Yamaha 4 STR 4HP

Information On Condition

This is a project boat that will need to be completed.

The engine starts easily and seems to run smoothly.

There is a slight transmission leak to be fixed.

The generator is sometimes temperamental according to the owner.

There is new ductwork ready to be installed for the A/C.

The Microwave needs to be fitted back into the Galley area.

See pictures for the current state of the repair work to be completed.

The engine oil was changed in May 2017. Injector Pumps were replaced in 2015.
