Landing Craft Workboat 1979 - Dive boat 26' w/ Trailer

Estimated price for orientation: 5 000 $

Category: Other Boats

Condition: Used  

I was told it was originally a U.S. Army Corp of Engineer vessel.  1979 26'.   My company purchased this ex government heavy duty fiberglass boat for a project and had the engines and out-drives tuned  up and ready for service as it has sat for a bit before we bought it, and in the end, we never needed it. So it has now sat for two years.  Water was drained from systems for winter time (Portland, Oregon area, so it is not very severe, but to be safe).   The bow does open up barn door style as opposed to dropping forwards.  It has twin 6 cylinder inline engines, it has a spare out-drive that came with it.The trailer is in good shape and is a triple axle unit.  The boat requires wide load signage going down the highway in some states.  It does come with the A Frame and an beefy electric winch that has been confirmed as operational.    The person that buys this boat should understand that it is a heavy work boat does have older style motors and out drives.  Those that like this type of set up, love them.  Replacement parts are easily available.  When we got it, we replaced a manifold that had a crack due to cold storage and found it was easier to buy a $500  boat with the matching engine and out drive for parts.  There were several small boats with this set up available on Craigslist when we needed it.The wheelhouse has a front window, but it did not appear to ever have side or back windows, by design.  Again, you will want to spend a couple weeks changing out some of the rub-rail, upgrading the ssoft floor in the engine room and likely retrofitting the flooring in the front of the boat to the configuration you prefer.  It could be designed to hold quite a bit under the deck by building up the area.  Title to boat and trailer are in hand.  I can show the vessel during any normal workday 8-5 by appt.  Buyer is responsible for pickup from Vancouver, WA. (across the river from Portland, OR).  Again, it is heavy and not something you will be pulling with a F150 (easily).   Great dive or utility work boat.
