Description

Benford 30 Project. The first photo was before we started working on it. Listed as new since its never been titled. Professionally built fiberglass hull. Interior is roughed in. New refrigerator, new alcohol stove and oven, 2 steering stations, Interior needs finishing. This was originally commissioned by a gentleman to be his retirement boat. He had the hull professionally built in Vancouver and he started to finish it out.
Unfortunately, his health failed as he got to retirement age and the project sat. The cabin sides and roof are fiberglass covered plywood and the seal around the windows failed and water got inside. The cabin sides (plywood) and part of the pilothouse roof (also plywood) need to be replaced. then the entire top deck needs to be recovered in fiberglass.
Has a Yanmar 3gm engine installed, transmission, shaft, bronze 3 bladed prop. Some of the parts included are manual winch, some stranding rigging, s steering wheels, winches, compass with binnacle, anchor, diesel cabin heater, lots of hardware and parts.
THERE IS NO MAST.
Not sure what year this would be as it has never been titled. Original blueprints included.
Includes 4 sailboat stands.
Lost my storage space. Must sell regardless of price. Starting the auction at $1. I have over $12000 in this project. The hull, engine, transmission, shaft, prop, stove, oven, refrigerator are new, never been in the water or used at all.
Must be moved immediately, 2 or 3 weeks after auction at the latest.
You'll need to hire a boat mover as it is not on a trailer. Unless you have a trailer and know how to get it onto your trailer where it sits. Currently located in Sumner, WA. Tacoma/Seattle area.
You may inspect it if desired. Contact me to arrange a good time.
Pros, New professionally built hull, New engine/transmission/shaft/prop. New stove/oven, lots of new parts. great project to start. Not too much work to finish.
Cons, needs plywood/fiberglass work, no mast, never titled, needs to be moved quickly.
