We are custom builders and every boat we build is made to order. But, if you’re not particularly picky, want a boat now without waiting for us to build it for you, or are just looking to save a little money, we occasionally have used boats available for sale. Usually they are consigned by our customers who have decided to upgrade or change to another of our boats, for whatever reason. Our current inventory of available boats is shown below; to get an idea of the sort of used boats we’ve had in the past, check out the “Available Now” category of our blog.

Available Now: Melonseed rowboat located in San Diego‏

This nice tandem slide seat Melonseed was built in 2007 for a marine biologist in San Diego. Health problems force the sale so here is an opportunity for California residents to get rowing now in a well equipped boat. The owner relates it has been in the water maybe 20 times and with the exception of some weathering on the mahogany gunwale is in perfect condition. It comes with tandem sliding seats, mahogany trim, stainless steel keel guard and two pairs of our 9′ spoon blade oars. New sister ship price is $8600 – don’t pass this up at just $5500!

If interested, contact us and we will forward your inquiry to the owner. He will show it in San Diego and may be able to deliver to the Southern California region.

Available Now: 12′ Point Defiance fixer upper

Here’s a Point Defiance sailboat that’s perfect for someone who is handy with a paint brush or buffer. Or someone who just wants to get on the water who isn’t fussy about appearance…

This boat has good bones but the green gel coat is obviously oxidized. A test section buffed out well. With a nice paint job it could really stand out again.  The sail rig is in very good condition and the sails are like new. It has it’s own trailer, spruce 8′ flat blade oars, kick up rudder, stainless steel keel guard and mocha colored boat cover.  It is a structurally sound boat that is ready for more years of service.

A new sister ship would be over $8,000, so this is a screaming deal at only $3,995 with trailer or $3,495 without trailer.

Available Now: 14′ Tyee rowboat

Whitehall Reproductions is well known for their high quality boats. Although they are our prime competitors we know them well, respect their work and consider them as friends. Rarely do we get one of their boats for resale but here is a nice example of their work.

This is their 14′ Tyee – not a “Whitehall” or “Whitehall Spirit” – the Tyee’s wider beam and higher freeboard makes it a fine family or fishing boat.  This boat features teak trim (Copper clench fastened!) and solid teak seats.

Included are two pairs of oars; 8′ for gunwale mounted rowing in narrow inlets and 9 1/2′ spoon oars for use in open water with the cast bronze flip – out outriggers. The lower hull is protected by a stainless steel keel guard. The Canadian builders’ estimated replacement price is roughly $11,o0o US. This consigner is asking $9500, and offers will be considered.  Note that the trailer *may* be included in that price if some cross-border licensing details can be resolved.
