1973 American Mariner

5 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

I have for sail (pun intended) my American 25. This boat is complete and in very good shape. Year is 1973; hull has been buffed and waxed 3 times this spring. Has custom vinyl lettering brand new this spring as well. Boat comes with a full galley, 110v Shore power, however the alcohol stove is kind of sketchy for me so I don?t use it, it does work. Sink has a 25 gal (I think) water tank which all works. Rest of the cabin includes all cushions; port a pot, cd-radio, roll top storage for a 4 bottles of booze, chips and anything else you need for a weekend.

Equipment on Board:

There is a window air unit that the guy before me had to put in the boat, and would work great if you stay at a place that you have access to shore power, however we dry store it so there is no reason to use it. Everything in the cabin is in great shape and I have done allot of work to the inside and outside of this boat (I have put almost $1000 of materials into this boat, not including my labor). Most all of the drawers, doors, shelves, and steps have all been re-done with oak, the teak has been re oiled, and really makes this boat look up to date. On the deck you will find a propane rail grill, 5w solar panel (has a crack in the glass, this may bring its effectiveness down a hair, but it still keep both batteries charged) bimini top, and many ropes. This boat is completely rigged, and all lines lead to the cockpit. Also there are many spare ropes and rigging. Comes with a 9.9 electric start mercury mariner, runs great, typically starts on first push unless it has sat for a week or two, then it takes 3 pushes with a little choke. There is also a swim platform on the back of the boat for easy on and off. Comes with two main sails, one of which has a few tears in it, a Genoa, jib, and storm jib. You will not be disappointed in this boat, I sure wasn’t. However I have a wife who I thought would love sailing and come to find out she hates it (doesn?t like heeling over a little bit). Please call or email for questions, (# removed) or and ask for Ryne.
I have stayed on the boat about 4 times this summer and have had no problems. Trailer is included. Comes with brand new hitch and surge brakes, and an 8′ tounge extension. Tires were brand new from the guy before me, so they have approx 300 miles on them. Easy on and off the trailer as that is how we put it in and out of the water all the time, it does not stay in the water.
