2004 Mainship 400T $169,000 OR half share in a partnership
Boat is turnkey and ready to begin cruising. It has been extensively upgraded with a stern thruster added in 2013, 3 new AGM’s in 2014 and a new Bimini and enclosure in 2015. “Glory Days” is powered by a single Yanmar 370 and has twin thrusters for easy maneuverability. See the attached spec sheet for full details. The boat is located near Islamorada in the Keys
Maintenance has always been our top priority. A full record of all we have done and the fuel and trip log are in the Maintenance Log link below.
Glory Days is currently held in a 50/50 partnership. The partnership agreement is attached in this link.:
Basically we split insurance and maintenance 50/50 and are each responsible for our operating expenses (moorage and fuel) while we have the boat. John has the boat for about 4.5 months per year in the winter and Francisco has it the rest of the time. The partnership going forward would be with John and his wife Karen. This was a great arrangement for both couples. We have an excellent working relation and it is only coming to an end, because Francisco and his wife have just adopted a 2 year old and just don’t see being able to spend sufficient time on the boat given their busy lives.
The rest of this blog is arranged chronologically from the present to when we bought the boat in Boston in 2012. The postings from the winter months are mostly from John and Karen, whereas the posting from May through December are mostly from Francisco and MP.
We used the boat differently. Francisco and MP were primarily weekend boaters as they are both employed, and they used the boat for entertainment of their extended family and friends. It’s great for that, as you probably know, as the fly bridge is the best I have seen on any boat, and includes the “summer kitchen” with propane grill. We just replaced the entire bimini and enclosure, as the original was pretty worn.
John and Karen were primarily “snow birds” and were live aboards on the boat from January through May, cruising extensively in Florida and the Bahamas. This is an excellent cruising and live aboard boat as well! Plenty of storage, good in rough seas and very comfortable.
