I just purchased a Mercator 30 "Billiken" last week. Hull # indicates date of manufacture as March 73. I really like the boat and am trying to get her ready for extended cruising. Information on these boats is rather scarce so please share any info you have on these boats. I have also started a Mercator forum on Yahoo for any owners and enthusiasts.

Lightbulb Mercator for sale in Seattle

Hello, I'm having to let go of mine (Gemini Spirit) after a two year complete restoration of it. Great boat, I only cruised locally but it performed great, very solid boats. If anyone wants info on Mercators I have some and a fair amount of information about the one we rebuilt.

Its listed on Craigslist in Seattle if anyones interested.

I'm a brand new sailor with no sailing experience but have had several power boats previously. I'm making the move to the green power, yeah it's about time i know! And I'm very interested in the Mercator since it's a decent size sailboat to start with and has blue water capabilities to go off-shore and possibly around the globe. It's also afordable compare to many other in its class however I have a hard time finding pictures/info on the interior of the boat such as cabin, dinnete, sette, head layout and looks. If any of you have any info and pictures, please let me know where I can find them.
Thanks,
J

As VundaKid indicated, go to the Yahoo group. See link in my earlier post on this thread. We have tons of pictures and some YouTube videos of various Mercators.
