the deed is done...

Well folks,
We have finally done it, the power-boat is finally up for sale.
We have enjoyed the boat for the last three years, coming from years of sailing.
This was a great boat for the PNW, for convenience, space and speed; but now it's on to pastures anew. Looking for a world cruiser.

That rig would get you around here pretty well! A shy bit quicker than a windbag boat.........but a bit harder to world cruise per say than a windbag......

Enjoy the looking for a new rig!

I know someone with a 1990 Sceptre 41 that is looking to sell. That will take you most any where. unless you are looking a bit newer.

Well done, nemier... come back to the light!

That Sceptre might be a good fit!

Nice boats Sceptres. Not too many of the damn things in the land down under but I've been tempted by a couple of them. They usually sell pretty quickly, which says something about their reputation I guess.

Good luck with the search Nemier.

TD,

The Scpeptre is about 2 docks north of Dodenja and myself. I am sure the owner will make you one heck of a deal, he has his sites on a jeanneau DS50 he saw at the recent boat show. I might have some specs or three somewhere, Bow thruster, double vs single spreaders as some have......almost all were slightly different from what I understand.

Maybe it is merely an aspect of my inherently gloomy mien but for me the worst aspect of a deck saloon is all the light it lets in down below. I'm prepared to pay that price in return for the view. To have all that light but no view does not make sense to me. Ergo, DS's like the late model Jeaneaus do not appeal. That's not to say thaye are not very handsome boats, they are, but if I'm to lose the view I want my dark gloomy cave back.

Hey Marty, if you like, have your mate send me details when he is ready to sell. I must say that while I do like the design, because all Sceptres were essential semi production one offs you have to watch for oddball interiors.

Nemier, you are PNW based are you not ? A good Sceptre is worth keeping an eye out for. Great cold climate boat.

For TD and Nemier

Sceptre (Sail) Boats For Sale

3 of them for sale now on YW - remarkably consistent price-wise. TD I see the Canadian, US and Ozzie dollar are pretty much at par now.....

FUzzy,

I'll see if I can find the email with info. he did put out a "For Sale" thru the Sceptre owners site, and local Jeanneau dealer is looking into listing it. Let me see what i can pull of tomorrow, as it is abotu 10:30 pm here in the NW.

I will admit, I have not been on Jon's boat. But YC I belong to has 3 of them, 2 -41's, and a stretch version ie a 43. All three were at a weekend cruise race last summer, along with another that is kept in the port we were at. The three in YC found it interesting comparing the 4 boats, even tho they could not get into the one. That person has two in family, his and his mom has had one for many years. He had to buy it in the carrabbian.

Yes neimer is up near abouts fasters part of the world. So yes, PNW/Salish Sea area if you will.
