27' Plywood Cabin Cruiser Project - FOR SALE

Alan Ranger (lives in Australind, just north of Bunbury) and has a 27ft plywood hull, shaft drive cabin cruiser project boat made in the late 60's or early 70's (estimated) for sale.

It has an enclosed pump out head, small galley and large V berth forward.

Alan is looking for a new owner who can take this project on.

Alan says:

“The boat has a planing hull design and elegant lines. It is overall in very good condition from what I see and only part of the top of the cockpit is a bit in need of redoing. The boat has been stored under cover for decades and has been stored in my garage for the last 8yrs or so. I do have an unregistered trailer that would fit and also a 70hp Perkins diesel that could go as a package deal. As there are other details to share and several potential options as far as engine, trailer etc it would be best if any interested party called me to discuss. I am looking for a genuine lover of timber boats who is capable of restoring this cruiser. My asking price for the boat on its own is around the $1500 mark but finding the right buyer is more of a motivation. You will see the advert on Gumtree as well


I can be extremely negotiable and am motivated to get it to somebody who can restore it rather than hack it up and have it gone for good. If somebody has a decent proposal I am happy to listen and consider it. As a young boy growing up (initially in NZ), I spent many a time on my grandfather’s timber 30'-40' cabin cruisers in the 60's so I have a passion for these boats. The timing for the next few years is just not favourable however.”
