Vintage Cabin Cruiser needs a new home

by Anne
(Salem, MA, USA)

1956 Maine built cabin cruiser.

In need of some serious renovation,"Lydia G." was a family boat and meticulously upkept.

She has been sitting in my Dad's driveway for 10+ years, (covered for the most part).
She is in rough shape right now but could definitely be brought back to glory!

She is 34' x 11'

draws 3ft. of water

equipped with a slant 6 cylinder Perkins diesel engine.

V berth that sleeps 2, fold down table in galley sleeps 1, 2 bunk beds.

Open to offers, she is located on Martha's Vineyard Island.

Please help us save her, she is a great classic boat.

She definitely does not deserve the salvage yard.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
