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??

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.

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

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..

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?

Watch great footage about the story of one man’s slow odyssey around the UK:

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:

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.
