1986 Spencer 1330 located in Washington for sale

43.8' Spencer 1330


Description: Legendary blue water design and heavily built, the 1330 has a well deserved reputation as a dry sailing offshore cruiser. Hull #11 of the 25 - 1330's built. Most popular and recognized Spencer after the Spencer 35. Was also John Brandlmayr's final design for Spencer Yachts.

Boat was sold it's original owner, a German cabinet maker, in 1977 as a partially completed boat. It was finished at the back Spencer boatyard along with a number of other owner completed boats being built that way at the time. Spencer employee #1 and the shop foreman, Les Macburney was privately contracted to assist in the completion of this boat. The boat was launched in 1986 and is documented as built that year by the US Coast Guard. In the mid 1990's an extensive interior remodel was done by the previous owner. As such the boat has a more custom feel to it than the standard 1330 interior. Truth is each of the twenty-five 1330's that were built were to one degree or another customized by their original owners, and there are no two boats throughout the line that are exactly the same.

Complete history of the boat has been researched. It's history can be traced from Spencer Yachts Ltd to the current owner. The owner has also been extensively involved with the Spencer Yacht Owners Group website the entire 16 year he has owned this vessel. This research included exchanging e-mail with Pat Brandlmayr directly. Pat was the wife of John Brandlmayr, the designer for Spencer Yachts. She also ran the company.

The boat has had bottom job 2007. Hull sanded to bare glass and allowed to dry for nearly a year in a covered tent before re-coating with 6 coats of straight epoxy, then followed 7 more coats of alternate colors Interlux 2000e. Professionally remounted on external keel, in 2001. Teak decks reconditioned in 2002.

The original installed Isuzu C-240 engine leaks oil and needs major work. Existing systems are nearly 30 years old and are either worn out or outdated. Or both. The owner has run short of cash and is being forced to sell.
