1987 Antigua 48′ Sailboat: Still Grand

1987 Antigua 48If you want a boat, you might as well go for something that looks amazing and functions well for your own safety. Even the older models are just as good as long as they’ve been maintained through the years. This 1987 Antigua Sailboat is a great example of such. It is available in an upcoming live auction in Alabama. The 48′ vessel comes with a fiberglass hull along with a full keel and rudder.

The weather may be growing cold in the Northeast, but the South’s still pretty fortunate. Take the time to go out and enjoy the sea breeze. There’s no other feeling quite like drifting about on open water. This sailboat appears to be in great shape, even after nearly 30 years in existence. However, like with all boats and other vessels, make sure you do an adequate amount of research before you pounce on this special auction item.

For boats, you want to inspect them just as much as you would want to inspect a used car. Used boats fit the same bill. You want to check out the exterior, ranging from the paint job to the state of the rudders. Or in this case, you want to check the masts that are part of the sailboat. You also want to do a thorough job investigating the interior of the boat, including the passenger space along with the motor and engine. Check if there are potential leaks or any sort of damage that could potentially cause more serious issues in the future. As long as you take the proper steps in checking out the quality of the boat, you will not lose out. If you are interested in boat auctions, just click here for more information.

1958 Tongass Ranger: Your Own Colossus

1958 tongass rangerThe government is letting go of some massive vessels. At this upcoming online auction, a surplus one, this 1958 Tongass Ranger will be available to the public for bidding. This 60+ footer is an old vessel that is still in working order. It has been pre-inspected for hazardous materials onboard and it checks out just fine. So all you need to worry about if you plan on owning this vessel is potential maintenance and repairs. Considering this vessel is over 50 years old, it’s likely that some maintenance and repairs will be necessary. Factor in those costs if you plan on bidding.

Some specs you may find handy include the vessel’s fuel consumption rate, which is reported at approximately 9.5 gallons per hour when running at 1,650 RPM. A lot of it can be the result of an old engine and also the fact that the vessel is so massive, at 53 tons! Again, factor in all these values if you plan on owning this vessel. Fuel’s pretty expensive nowadays. This doesn’t exclude the possibility to modifying the vessel for your own tastes, though, so you can potentially make the ship just a little more fuel efficient if you have the budget.

To get more information on this vessel, start by activating your free trial account. If you’re interested in boats and ships in general, you can click here. Not often does the government auction off massive pieces like this Tongass Ranger, but when they do, jump on the opportunity.
