I want this boat...

72 ft Vripack Custum Built Sport Fishing Yacht Trans Atlantic Hull Aluminum | eBay

Has more hours than I like on the equipment, probably just replace the generators and see how the mains look...also the heads are dated. Oh and the bridge is 1980's its crying for a Raymarine E series make over with some MTU electronic controls and throttles.


But WOW, looks like a lot of boat. Big 72, reminds me of a Striker.


I have a feeling she will plow threw 10-12 seas pretty well.

Come off a 100 and maybe. A lot of genny hours and a 35g "marina quote" which translates to about 70.

What? No built in "kegarator"? No wine chiller? Sounds pretty "low dollar" without those two essentials. I wouldn't offer more than $498K for it. There are limits to how much I am willing to "rough it" ya know.

I'd want to live on it, with a small warehouse within walking distance for all of my cars and a large entertainment space.

I can see doing that when all of my kids move on. The Mrs. isn't exactly "all in" yet, though. So it might just work out as planned.

Whenever I come up with something like this my wife responds with "that's nice dear, people in hell want ice water too."

Yeah it needs some TLC, and updating. Looks like it would take to updating quite well though.

I wonder what the 35k repair is?

The bathrooms certainly cry out Miami Vice but beyond that I like it! It's certainly a lot bigger then the first photo may lead you to believe.


However the bedroom(s) still remain to be seen......

Heads and bunks or staterooms.

Boats don't have bathrooms or bedrooms.

I wish they listed her dimensions, she looks like a big 72. Below decks isn't bad, varnished mahogany never goes out of style or looks dated.
