42 Feet 1986 Carver Motor Yacht

A distinctive yacht with her stylish cabin windows, aggressive bridge overhang, and reversed radar arch, the 42 Motor Yacht was Carver's first attempt at the big-boat market...and what a success! She sold very well during her production years and remains popular today in the pre-owned market thanks to a roomy, well-arranged and cavernous floorplan. She's built on a conventional modified-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom. There were two floorplans available...this is the one without a dinette, providing a larger galley and guest head forward, and a larger guest stateroom with a centerline berth. The salon offers a huge feel for a 42-footer and with her wrap around windows offers a panoramic view allowing an abundance of natural light in. While most were built with a lower helm to port, this one was not, allowing more room in the salon for lounging and entertaining. The aft deck offers space for table and chairs, protected with the hard top, while the bridge has enough comfortable seating for six. Her well-arranged engine room has more than adequate space for getting around, and is accessed via fold up steps from the galley area. She's powered by Mercruiser 454-cid gas engines. While no speed demon, she'll cruise comfortably at about 13-15 knots while reaching a top speed of just over 18 knots. The owner cruises this vessel in the fresh waters of the Upper Chesapeake Bay around 20-50 hours every year. While she makes an excellent condo on the water, she hasn't been sitting still like many of her sister ships!

26 Feet 1948 Higgins Industries

Greetings from Indiana... Everyone"s first question is usually why I am selling The Andrew J. We have had many great experiences together since her restoration was completed some 10 years ago. It's time for someone else who appreciates these fine Higgins boats to enjoy cruising and going to shows as my health and mobility as well as my work has not enabled us to travel with her and manage that lifestyle any more. She is stored inside on her custom made trailer but I will be losing this storage next year so I have to start selling my most treasured possesions. She is still in great condition and the last time I exhibited her for judging in 2018, she scored a 99.5 in the Preserved Category and won Best of Show Preserved. (ACBS International Show Racine, WI). She did not get her bottom wet in 2019 as life is speeding past and our direction has changed. She is a very rare boat and is the only 1948 26' Higgins Deluxe Sedan Cruiser that we know of. She was restored by Dan Nelson of Nelson Boatworks up near Lake Minnetonka, MN to the exact factory specifications. So how does a person conclude on how much to ask for her? With well over 100K invested it would be nice to find a buyer at that price but I am a realist so I have come to the decision of asking $69,500. She has a clean title and is ready for a sea trial. I pull her with my Ford F150 V6 Turbo on easy speeds of 65 mph down the interstate. She rides smooth and steady. To gain more context on her superb restoration and comments from others, I would suggest you start with this great Article about "The Andrew J" written by Texx from WoodyBoater. copy and paste to your browser... https://www.woodyboater.com/blog/2011/10/06/the-andrew-j-an-amazing-1948-higgins-barn-find/ For refernces on value, I would suggest to contact Dan Nelson of Nelson Boatworks, Paul Morris from Cedar Tree Boat Show, Jeff Funk, Scott Ramsey of Ramsey Bros. Restoration and any of the other ACBS officers who have judged The Andrew J in past years. I am confident they will consider my asking price an extremely good value. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Warm regards... Jeff (Pictures taken by WoodyBoater and Forrest Bryant)
