Prices have gone sky high! And that's a good thing!

That's a clean looking boat - early one, with the Atkins Hoyle sliding hatch.
We once viewed a '79 model similarly equipped.
Engine seems to have been replaced once.
Price looks kind of average or even low, at under 50K US, but only a personal inspection will tell the tale.
Draft is stated to be over 11 feet, so no one is checking/editing listings.
Anyhow, nice pix.
Thanks!

It looks like the engine is raw water cooled... so at that age one would have to price in a replacement.

Not sure we can believe that, given the sloppy specs listed. Most four-cylinder diesels on boats are fresh water cooled--I think. Photo shows a coolant manifold--I think.

This specimen has air conditioning (2017), upgraded traveler, all upgraded opening ports. Original early E38 configuration below, with split bench and probably the semi-enclosed quarterberth.

Per this earlier thread from 2009, that is a shoal draft version, if that is the owner that posted in the above thread. Boat name: Red Rover.
Of course he may have sold it.

I bought Frank G's boat in 2012 - unfortunately, from his estate. It was called Molto Bene when he owned it.
