1979 Post 420 Sportfish Fishing Boat in Holden Beach, North Carolina

Stock #048916

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

This 1979 Post 42 Sport Fisherman boasts fiberglass hull, decks, and super structure. Post elegance, power, and comfort. Large master stateroom and guest cabin with over/under bunks.

Twin Detroit's at 330 HP each power this Post 420 Sport Fisherman and the seller reports they work very well.

Gold-plated sportfisherman strikes near-perfect balance of signature Post elegance, comfort, and power.

Richly appointed interior features spacious salon with L-shaped dinette, big master stateroom, guest cabin with over/under bunks.

Washer/dryer installs in alcove abaft head, wiring and plumbing are in place.

The extended flybridge is bigger than it looks with seating for eight, rod storage and a well-arranged helm.

The engine room is accessed from under cockpit step.

See some background on the builder below:

The company was founded by Russell Post, who had previously co-founded the original Egg Harbor Yacht Company. He was well-suited for the task, for at the age of 15, he had built his first boat in which he later won an international sailing championship.

Russell always approached boat building with the same energy and enthusiasm. For example, he sold his only car in order to purchase the cedar needed to build the very first Egg Harbor (hull #1). Other operating funds were generated by building and selling small skiffs and sailboats.

The natural inlets of the South Jersey coast, where currents scoured the channels and ocean waves crashed through unchecked, proved to be an ideal testing ground for those early models. Mr. Post made it a point to personally run each boat in order to assure its seaworthiness in all sea conditions.

After the sale of Egg Harbor, Russell enjoyed a short-lived retirement. By 1957 he was back in the boat building business with a new nameplate and company, aptly named Post Marine. With a solid reputation for building quality boats, Russell took the next logical step and opened the current Post facility located on the Great Egg Harbor River in Mays Landing, New Jersey. "Yachts of Quality, Not Quantity Since 1957" was the new company's slogan . . . reflecting a philosophy which has remained management's position today.

With regard to management, Post remains somewhat unique within an industry that often appears to thrive on constant change. In 1975, partners Charlie Walters and Bill Schell purchased the company from Mr. Post.

To Charlie and Bill, carrying on the Post tradition amounted to staying the course. In 1957, and at the age of seventeen, Charlie had become Russell Post's second employee.

Over the years, he had seen the pattern for success develop, and had the foresight to take the company to an even higher level with the help of Bill and long-time Vice President Ken Jensen. The conservative management style, that has served the company well through the industry's ups and downs, was a critical part of its success.

Unlike many of its counterparts, Post has never tried to build something for everyone. The company has chosen to concentrate its efforts on meeting the high standards of a select number of seasoned boaters.

As a result, the crew at Post Marine has been able to maintain a level of quality and value through 54 years of production.
