1950 Carvel Timber Cruiser Seller Description

This is our gorgeous circa 1948 Motor Cruiser. This spotted gum hull with Douglas Fir decking was built originally as a Navy Pilot boat. It was then converted to a fishing trawler around the mid 50’s operating out of Eden for many years. Some time later it was discovered in the Maribyrnong river as merely a hull with some decking. It was brought back to life by the owner previous to me in the 70’s being completely fitted out to a reasonable standard. At the time the hull and structure were completely intact. I purchased this fitted boat 14 years ago when she needed some additional care. I have replaced almost the entire decking with hand selected fine grain clear Doulas Fir. Some of the deck beams and knees were also in need of replacement. The entire trunk cabin has also been replaced, as has the entire bulwarks and handrails. She has new interiors, helm, rewired etc. We have repowered her with a 7 litre Volvo Penta turbo coupled to a Twin Disc gearbox. This boat is simply gorgeous and unique, I have enjoyed many family excursions and many fishing trips on her. She is very capable of handling rough weather and glides beautifully on a smooth Autumn fishing evening in Melbourne. She comes with a full survey, has just been antifouled etc.
She measures 41feet hull length, beam is 13’6″, with a draught of just under 5′. A cruising speed of around 8 knots with the hugely powerful and reliable engine ticking over at 1800 rpm. The price I am asking is a fraction of what I have spent on her over the years. I have a genuine reason for sale, I will be sad to see her go but happy for you to be the next person to enjoy her majestic lines. She is currently at Sandringham Victoria.
