Amazing Boat For The Discriminating Buyer
 
Hi All,

I wanted to let you guys know of a boat that has recently been announced for sale. I DO NOT normally do this but this boat is absolutely beautiful.

My buddy Tim, who is as anal retentive as I am, has decided to sell his 1985 Ericson 35-3 to go off cruising in a bigger boat. This boat is a "two percenter" (less than 2% of boats on the market are in this good of shape). She is also fast...

For the discriminating buyer this is a hell of a boat. She has THOUSANDS of hours of labor in her plus nearly new everything including 2010 topside refinishing in Imron. I would not personally recommend it if it were not an exceptional boat.

This boat is not being sold through a broker so if you want contact info / pricing please PM me.

Full Disclosure: I am in no way associated with this sale other than the fact that I am a friend of Tim's and know the boat very, very well. There is one very interested party but no "deal" as of yet. I wanted yo let you guys be some of the first to publicly, other than word of mouth, have a crack at this boat..

Beautiful boat Maine Sail. I've seen photos of it in some of your other posts. What is TIm getting to go cruising on??

BTW, I think the barrier coat would be Interprotect 2000E not Interlux 2000.

What engine is on this boat? Also, has the fuel tank been replaced??

bljones 02-24-2010 11:10 AM

I think this boat is better than the one being offered to the right buyer.

BTW, the sailplan and interior for the Ericson 35-III looks like this:

Has not found it yet. They are flying to Florida this weekend, moisture meter in hand, to look at three or four boats. They are considering the CC Freedom's..

No but removed, cleaned, inspected, pressure tested and an inspection port installed.

SD,
"Powerful you have become, Dog. The dark side I sense in you."
Or, are you considering buying it instead of the Telstar?


Maine, Very beautiful vessel, why is Tim not using that for cruising?

sailingdog 02-24-2010 04:22 PM

Nah, love my boat, and wouldn't change it... just thought that any potential interested parties would want to know about the engine and fuel tank, since the fuel tank rusting out is an issue and knowing what engine you're getting into is always good...

I was just looking at his boat today after following another post. The boat is beautiful. We just bought our first boat a few months ago, but if we were ready to go bigger, I'd jump at this. You can check out some of the work they've put into her here:

Photo Sharing by MyPhotoAlbum :: Tim's MyPhotoAlbum :: Cordelia, our 1985 Ericson 35-3

BTW - Tim posted in another forum that Cordelia is SOLD!

This boat was impeccably maintained!

My wife and I saw the boat before the other buyer, and would have placed an offer had Tim not told us that he granted the (eventual) buyer the right of first refusal.
