For Sale By Owner


1989 41′ Defever Trawler

No – not for sale yet but, it may happen if I don’t get back down to La Paz and start cruising soon.  Earlier today, a quick and easy FaceBook comment about cruising to Key West, Florida via Cuba.  A firm YES comment by someone also willing, able and ready to make the trip with me may be all it takes to get this new adventure rolling.  When?  Cruising season 2017.

So what happened?  We came home after our first year of cruising and decided to sell the little beach home and soon a gentlemen farm came in the picture.  Can you say lots and lots of work.

And if I were selling the M/V Western Flyer the asking price of $125k (Nov 2016) would include FREE delivery to either U.S. coast.  Over $100k spent on getting her cruising ready since purchased.  Custom hardtop, all new electronics, liferaft, detailed engine room, everything on the twin Ford Lehmans is new, dual racors, heat exchangers, starters, alternators, etc.  New refrigerator and stove, air conditioning, new water tanks, etc.

She started in Poulsbo, Washington and then moved to Portland, Washington before making her way to her home port in Los Angeles, California.  In 2016 she cruised with over 140 sailboats on the Baja-Ha-Ha to Cabo and presently is enjoying the facilities at La Paz, Marina Costa Baja.
