NEW Sportsman 38

"Needs Refit"

53' Huckins Atlantic

$35,500

Year: 1966  |   Located in: Jacksonville, FL  |   Hull Material: Cold-molded  

It would cost $3.5M to build this boat today!

This vessel has been well cared for prior to this event. She is a cold-molded Huckins with a very favorable 2 stateroom 3 head layout and the Atlantic 53 offers a 16-foot Galley-Salon arrangement for the cruising family that likes to stay together.

The owner invested $450k+ into the boat before she tragically ran aground on the intercoastal. One side of the port strut bearing got jammed up into the hull and the interior of the boat flooded as the tide came up.

The boat is currently hauled out at the Hinckley yard in Savannah but will be towed down to Jacksonville on August 31st.

She is the perfect blank slate for someone to finish her out with the power and equipment of their choosing.

What was done: New engine seacocks, Lewmar Capstan 3/8 chain and gypsy with 150 ft of s/s chain, $55k worth of Teak & Holly soles from Teak Decking that needs refinished, widened and rearranged the f/b, mahogany top added to galley, exterior aluminum polished, hullside interior/exterior portlights painted, new Buell Horns, chromed hardware at helm, new Bimini and handrails on f/b , new hardware in shower and sinks, new blackwater tank for dayhead, new Sunbrella upholstery on bridge and f/b cushions. + much more, which is now obsolete.

 

What is needed: Engines, generator, upper & lower electronics, fire suppression in engine room, wiring (full re-wire or partial re-wire is not know at this time), battery cables, batteries, battery charger, inverter, bilge pumps, switches, (2) a/c units, galley equipment (stove/fridge), and soft goods (mattresses, curtains), ice maker, water maker.

 

Previously powered with: 3208 CATS 375 hp and Twin Disc transmissions.

Mechanical equipment that can still be used: all underwater parts (shafts, rudders, struts, props), Huckins M56 V-drive with a max horsepower is 425 hp.
