Time To Say Good-Bye
It is with great excitement
that we would like to announce that Skinny Dippin’ is officially on the
market!! The first step in buying our second boat is selling the first
boat. With that being said, if you, or anyone you know is currently in
the market for a well-kept extremely economical Sundeck Trawler w/
Single Diesel Perkins 135hp with stern thruster, let us know.
Make: Senator/J.R. Yachts (importer)
Model: Futura Sundeck
Bridge Clearance: 16.5’
No. of Engines: 1 (Perkins 6.354, 135hp) Approx. 2400 hrs.

Fuel: Diesel (1.5-2.0 gph burn rate)
Fuel Capacity: 300 gal.
Water Capacity: 150 gal.

This is the perfect size
for a cruising couple or a single-handler. With a single stateroom,
single head with large shower, large salon and galley down
configuration, she offers a lot of space for a boat her size. In
addition, without too many systems to leave you stranded, it makes her
also a very good boat for people new to owning a larger-format vessel.
With a full keel, the prop is well protected. Perfect for the inland
waterways and the shallow areas of the Bahamas.
Skinny Dippin’ has taken us
from Manteo NC to Georgetown SC and all ports in between. Coastal
cruising or doing The Great Loop, Skinny Dippin’ is ready and willing to
go. Our 2009 survey listed her as above average. Since then, we have
taken great care keeping her up while adding a lot of useful and needed
updates and upgrades.
We have operator and
owner’s manuals for practically every piece of gear onboard. This also
includes the engine’s owner’s guide, maintenance manual, and a full
parts list. All of this documentation is printed and sorted and
organized in binders. We will also include the maintenance log book that
records all major (and much of the minor) work done back through the
previous owner AND the original blueprints from the Taiwanese boatyard
that built her.
This boat this very
well-kept will not last long on the market! We are happy to show you the
boat at your convenience during any upcoming weekend. She is
conveniently located at the New Bern Grande Marina at the Doubletree
Hilton in New Bern, NC.

A complete upgrade of fuel management system (including a fuel scrubbing circuit).
A complete system rebuild of the DC charging and DC management system
