1986 Lotus 9.5 31 Racer Sailboat in San Pedro, California

Stock #228374

The Lotus 9.5 Meter is built in New Zealand and has been designed to be a day racer and cruiser. She cruises at 5 to 6 knots and is capable of 7 knots.

This boat is a project boat. The hull and standing rigging seem to be in fair to good condition so the bones are good.

The interior needs a complete overhaul. If you are a person who wants to take on a refurbishment project and has the heart to stick it out this could be a cool boat when brought back to her original glory.

The engine is not in the boat but is available for rebuild and the toilet is missing.

There are sails onboard but it is unknown what sails they are.

So if you are a person who likes to take on a project and has the vision to see what can be this might be just the project for you.

Information On Condition

The hull seems to be in good condition and the standing rigging also seems to be in fair to good condition. The deck looks pretty good with small stress cracks in all the usual places for a boat this age.

The engine was removed and is in storage. It would need to be rebuilt.

The toilet is also removed. All the wood needs to be sanded to bare wood again and refinished. She would be pretty if you did.

All the upholstery needs to be used as a pattern only to make new cushions. The salon windows need to be replaced as both are cracked and leaking.

Great design and well built it just has been neglected for some time and lots of work will be needed to bring her back.
