1983 Munson Packer
| Please call owner Daniel at 360-202-1078
Boat is in Seattle, Washington. |
EXCELLENT general purpose all aluminum sport or utility platform.
Year of hull manufacture approx 1984.
Designed for oil spill recovery, this configuration is similar to a bowpicker / gillnetter or landing craft, but has a fixed bow... with a lot of load space.
The offset house is 6' in length.
While it is bare at this time, it should be adaptable for extended runs with a little ingenuity.
The house is long enough for pipe berths.
The original guards were industrial grade Johnson-Duramax, but seeing age, were just replaced with 2"x3.5" UHMW guards inside and out for uncompromising protection. (and see photos showing sandwich/clad bolting around both sides of the hull)
Fuel capacity is approximately 140 gallons in a deck-mounted tank on the side of the house.
Beam is 9' 3" following the application of the UHMW guards.
The hull was slag blasted then painted with 2-part epoxy paint both inside and outside gunwales.
Work to be completed before ready: There is a 4' mast with 4 levels for radar, lights, navigation aids etc to be mounted (and will tilt over for clearance on the trailer).
Epoxy paint still needs to be applied to the lower outside of the house and the radar mast before mounting...
Of course the motors and navonics need to be mounted and rigged... but the boat is in the final stage of completion now.
Stern mounted tow post and line guides both bow and stern.
There are also 2-4" tubes at port and starboard at the rear deck able to accommodate crab davits or hoists.
In fact, this boat has 4 lift eyes for a crane AND can include a forklift movable land cradle (available separately for $1,000)... as seen inside forward deck in photos.
The rearward engine guard (in photos) has been removed.
Only the beam-width cross guard over the transom remains.
There are 3 water-tight utility storage lockers over the transom.
The deck has 5 scuppers... 3 of them threaded 4" and 2 at the stern at 1.5".
There is also a bilge sump in the rear deck.
EZ-Loader trailer included... bill of sale only for all components.
The boat is tough and should safely navigate anything Puget Sound can dish up. .250 bottom and transom marine alum thickness.
Replacement cost hull alone is $80K.
Originally intended to be matched with twin 300hp E-tec's, response time to events would be unmatched by combining the seaworthiness of this hull with an estimated 60mph performance from the 600hp power plants.
NO MOTORS or additional equipment included for this price... only the boat and trailer.
