Triton For Sale on E-Bay

There's a Aeromarine Triton for sale on eBay. I've been told by a friend on another forum that the boat is in pretty decent shape. You can see the auction here.

I have no affiliation with the boat or the seller, and my friend doesn't either... he's just a marina neighbor of the current owner.

So, for you guys out in California, looking to get a boat... here's your chance.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My point is it's a 50 year old boat. Triton or otherwise, it will have some big issues to deal with. If I was in the market for one, and since they were produced from '59 to '67, I'd look for a slightly later hull . . . but that's just me.

At any rate, nice find for the right sailor and it is an Alberg, so worthy of restoration.

From what I understand, it is in fairly decent shape. The photos show it to be in pretty nice condition. I'd still highly recommend a survey.

That's Whisper, an extensively upgraded and very well maintained Triton yawl. The yawl rig was added by the current owner recently and it appears from his photo-documented accounts that it was done well.

He has a website and some You Tube videos of the boat sailing.

I can tell you from experience that the Triton is a very solid and a very nice sailing boat.

Below is a photo of the Triton I used to own. This photo was taken after and Islander 36 landed on the boat. Pretty solid...even if it is near 50.

I don't care what you guys say...

This one here made it from Connecticut to Portugal in one leg, non stop...

To me that says a lot..much much much more than most of us will do and certainly A HECK OF A LOT more than many newer and bigger boats will ever do....to me...reason for respect.
