PSC 31 (reluctantly) for sale

I've been a serial boat restorer for the past 10 years and, somewhat to my surprise, I find that I've run out of steam. This is partly due to the fact that my sailing and restoration buddy (my son) has been working overseas for much of this year and I'm tired of working alone. At any rate, here's a chance to pick up a 1990 31 with most (85-90 percent) of the hard and expensive work already done. The boat had been a live-aboard when I bought her two years ago. She was in fine shape structurally and mechanically, but needed a lot of cosmetics and gear upgrades. In the past two years, I've spent over $10,000 on parts and gear and hundreds of hours of my time.

New gear: Anchor light; VHF antenna; smoke/CO monitor; GFCI on house AC circuits; Plastimo dorades; stainless reading lights and cabin lights; Raritan PHII head; Charles Marine 30 amp battery charger; Sony AM/FM/CD player; Blue Seas auxiliary fuse panel; Raymarine X-5 Smart pilot with Raymarine ST600 remote; forward hatch lens and gasket; ICOM M422 VHF with CommandMic in cockpit; Raymarine ST60+ depth sounder with two transdcuers; 36 Edson wheel (in lieu of 28); Xantrex EchoCharge; Rolly Tasker fully battened main sail; Rolly Tasker 130 genoa with Sunbrella strip; lazy jacks and Sailrite sail pack (Captain Navy Sunbrella); Life Sling2; NE Rope VPC main halyard; new cockpit Teleflex water temp and oil pressure gauge; FloJet VSD fresh water pump; Lewmar 30 ST winch for main halyard; Yanmar engine panel fascia; Corian head countertop; polished stainless sink in head; Scandvik Faucet with shower handle; bilge pump cycle counter; BoomKicker rigid boom vang; bimini; stainless rub rail; engine kill switch cable; 3 coats bottom paint (Spring 2012); Yanmar raw water pump; Yanmar exhaust elbow and mixing elbow; Garhauer mainsheet blocks; Running rigging (main sheet, genoa sheets, roller furling line, reefing lines).

The exterior teak has been mostly cleaned up and has five coats of Cetol. Most of the interior teak has been cleaned and varnished. Last winter, I wet sanded, compounded, polished and waxed the hull. It looks close to new.

What is left to do? I think she needs new upholstery, but she'll obviously sail fine as is. The cabin sole needs refurbishing. Some of the interior teak still needs attention. Ditto the exterior grad rails. I started, but did not finish, replumbing the waste system. The domestic hot water is connected to shore power only; it needs to be reconnected to the engine (the hoses are there, but I can't guarantee that they don't leak). The batteries could use a decent box and hold down. I never got around to spending the time on the deck to make it look as good as the hull.

I have hundreds of photos documenting my work and I'm happy to share them with serious inquirers. The price is $65,000, which I believe reflects the amount of work left to do as well as the work I have done. You can contact me by a PM through this site or call me at area code two zero two, niner six six zero two niner one.

Re: PSC 31 (reluctantly) for sale

I've made an offer on an '88 PSC 31 but just in case it should fall through...would you please email me pics to: I also have a new boatyard buddy who says he's looking for one. If nothing else I can see if it's in the same relative condition as the one I'm likely buying which might help me to sleep better at night ;-)
Thanks and good luck.

Hey Al, that's really too bad for you. I saw your boat this past spring and I know you've done a lot to her. Clue will be in Eastport over the winter so if you get an urge to do some boat work, let me know, haha. Seriously, though, once you sell your boat, call me and we'll go sailing.

Re: PSC 31 (reluctantly) for sale

My boat is seriously for sale now and I've posted a bunch of photos here: 1990 Pacific Seacraft 31 sailboat for sale in Maryland

I'll honor the lower asking price I originally posted here. My plan is to try to sell her myself for the next month and a half. If she's not sold by April 1, I'm turning her over to my broker and we'll have some finish work done and the price will reflect that work plus the broker's commission. So if anyone is interested, now is the time to have a look.
