1978 Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 Sailboat
I am selling my 1978 Boston Whaler Harpoon with trailer. It has recently seen a thorough refit. Within the last 12 months the cockpit of the boat has been fully stripped and sanded followed by 3 coats of Interlux Pre Kote (INT-4279). New Non Skid was also applied to all surfaces in the form of Interlux Intergrip. The final coat of paint was professionally sprayed at a body shop with two coats of Interlux Brightside White Y4359. The Transom was also repainted with Interlux in “Ocean Blue” Y4253. The transom looks amazing and is ready for a name of your choice to be added. The paint on this boat is top notch and is evident at first glance. All of the woodwork was redone as well at the same time. As you research these boats you will find a variety of configurations and materials used as the seats have been redone. In this case no expense was spared and solid Uruguayan Pink Eucalyptus was used. Not an inch of plywood is found on this boat. Also you will notice that the slat format for the seat tops is not only a much more aesthetically pleasing design but much more labor intensive. The wood was stained with a Mahogany stain and finished with 7 meticulous coats of Interlux YVA502 Compass Clear. The Boston Whaler decals on the cuddy were also replaced after painting. The hull has never been painted. It has been polished and waxed at the beginning and end of the season but could honestly use one more thorough polish to remove some haze. I cannot emphasize what attention to detail was given in the materials and time used in the rehab of this boat. The trailer itself is the original Dilly brand tilt trailer with tires in great condition as well as a spare. The mast crutches are also made of hardwood which was refinished in the same way as the seats. The rails on the trailer have been recently resurfaced and an extra winch strap is included. I have trailered this boat over 400 miles with no issues. The engine on this boat is a 5HP Nissan NS5B longshaft that has been winterized properly and runs like a top.The boat also has balers replaced 3 seasons ago and brand new standing rigging. The running rigging is not new but is in good shape. When it comes to the rigging again everything is top quality with Harken blocks and beautiful stainless steel shackles and snap shackles. There is over 500.00 spent alone on new snap shackles this season. The sails are in good shape but are the only thing on the boat that hasn’t been replaced or overhauled. They work fine but are somewhat wrinkled however they are without stains or tears with plenty of snap left to them. The boat is currently garaged. Located in Louisville KY this boat is a short drive from most places. Delivery or meeting halfway could be discussed as well. Feel free to contact me via phone, email or text at any hour with questions.
