MC 39 Sloop - feedback

Does anyone have any experience, feedback or opinions on a MC 39 Sloop, apparently 30 were built by Marcos Yachts in Vancouver.

well i think they are very well built boats. if you were going to purchase one i would say you would be very lucky to find one under 100,000 us dollars. i have sailed aboard one and i never was afraid like i get on a hunter or catalina or other production boat.

the marcos 39 is designed to take you around the world in safety and reasonable comfort, for a vessel under 40 feet.

Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

Hey Surfn8054, very cool How do you know which number you've got? What year is it? Whereabouts around the globe are you? I'm a new sailor so am going to learn how to sail on my MC39. So far it seems like a rock-solid boat. We're moored in Blaine, WA and ours is a 1981. No idea which number it is though....

Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

I bought my first hull from Markos (note spelling). Not a 39 but he was one of the best builders in the Vancouver area back then. All his boats were very nicely built.

I was on some of his 39's at the time, both complete and not - they would make extremely comfortable homes.

He sold hulls & decks so caveat emptor. It's pretty easy to tell if it was his build though. One trademark was gratings inside with all the edges rounded over. I never cared for it but it was distinctive.

How about some pics?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

Yes, our MC39 was built by Markos Yachts in Vancouver. You are totally right. The inside is all slatted doors and vents with rounded corners on everything She's a very solid boat. We're working on getting the diesel stove running soon as it is getting chilly and we just have a little electric cabin heater. Do you know if Markos put the diesel stoves in when he built them? (I'm not sure if it was put in later by the previous owner or not) The beds are smaller than we'd have liked but it does have 2 cabins... Do you guys with MC39's have a nook that converts to a berth? We can see where our table used to fold down but can't figure out how it converted. (As it appears to have been since made to no longer convert) SloopJonB- maybe you've been on my boat before!

Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

Everything Markos did was semi-custom so the heater could go either way. I've seen Tewkesbury solid fuel fireplaces, like the photo, on them for example.

I guarantee those weren't "stock".
