FOR SALE IS A 1983 Hunter 34’ powered with a Yanmar 3 cylinder diesel auxiliary inboard.  The boat suffered damage to the cabin interior from rain water that infiltrated the cabin during winter storage.  It was determined that the water leak was caused by an improperly installed winter storage cover that allowed rain water to funnel into the cockpit and over the companionway and/or aft cabin hatch.

The boat was evaluated by the insurance company and was declared a total loss.  RACE Marine Consultants has been retained to sell the salvage on behalf of the insurer.

Overall Condition:   the interior has suffered significant damage as a result of the standing water trapped in the cabin over the winter of 2013-14 as can be seen in the photos attached.  There may be other damage that is not readily visible.

The hull, however, is in excellent condition and was refinished on Awl-Grip in the spring of 2013.  Fresh anti-fouling hull bottom paint was applied in 2013.   The Yanmar auxiliary appears to be undamaged but has not been started.  The engine hour meter shows 359 hours total time. 

The boat was well equipped with Nav/Com instruments.  Due to the conditions at the time of the inspection, no attempt was made to power-up the instruments.

More information on this model is available at:


The damage surveyor reported the damage to the insurance company as follows:

1.      The cabin sole was covered with slime created from oil and grease from the bilge that had mixed with the water that had infiltrated the cabin.

2.      There was a scum line around the perimeter of the cabin that was approximately 2 inches over the sole.

3.      The lower ends of the cabinets and bulkheads had damage to the finishes.

4.      Moisture was dripping from the cabin ceiling.

5.      All of the cabin walls and bulkheads were covered with mold.

6.      There was a powerful odor of mold and mildew within the cabin.

7.      The cabin upholstery fabrics and cushions were wet and smelled of mold and mildew.

WARRANTY: NONE  The boat will be sold AS IS/WHERE IS.

TITLE:  The boat was registered in Connecticut which does not issue titles for boats.  This boat will be sold under a bill of sale approved by The State of Connecticut.

INSPECTION: The boat is currently stored in Portland, Connecticut and inspection is available by contacting Art Collins at (508) 747-0014.

DELIVERY: Transportation and loading are at the buyer's expense. 

PAYMENT: A deposit of $500.00 is required via PayPal to, or by cash or bank check within 48 hours of the close of the auction.  The balance is due within ten days or upon delivery, whichever occurs first.  The rig must be delivered to the buyer within 14 days of the sale date or arrangements made  for storage.  Storage charges at the boat yard will commence 14 days from the sale date.
