If I was to pass over to the dark side this looks a cracker.

17000 hrs just run in for a Gardiner 8.

Just got to figure out where to keep her.

I learnt my boating in a Carey launch.

Still the prettiest launch in Auckland

Ha, I know someone looking very hard at that right now.

If the garden ornament was floating I'd probably have a crack myself.

 

It's snubber is woefully short and virtually pointless.

Wouldn't you just live on her and stooge around the coast anchoring in all the nice quiet bays?

Can't keep a boat like that tied up in a marina...

Careys yard built some beautiful Boats. Although they all seemed rather slow, they were excellent Sea handling vessels. Rodger and Phil both have tremendous Deep Sea experience and their designs came from that experience.  That particular design looks very much like Rodger's (Father) design and being 74, Phil may well have had a hand in building it. Jim's days had the iconic swept back designs.

The only thing to be wary of, the Gardner engine no longer has parts being made. While these engines are damn close to be the Rolls Royce of Diesels and clock up huge hrs, they are going to become hard to obtain part for. In saying that though, even though it has some age on it, it may still outlast many that buy the boat today.

Been in touch with both Shaw Diesels here and Gardner in England.
No issues with supply of parts or servicing from their view.

Yes there is no issue with availability other than the pricing.... should you ever need to. Which could be a very scary expedition.

 

But given its a Garner you probably wont need to...
