$3500 for 1/4th interest, 4 person partnership. This 1969 Ericson 30 foot sailboat slipped in beautiful Marina del Rey, a 5 minute walk from Mothers Beach, a short bike ride from Venice Beach and restaurants and bike paths that ply the coast. Its a perfect escape away from the heat to sail, paddle board, or just to relax in the cool breeze of the ocean.
Charmony is a solid fiberglass sailing vessel with a heavy encapsulated keel making her the stable & reliable coastal cruiser that Ericsons are renowned for. She has been refitted with an electric engine, battery bank and new electric meter. No smelly or expensive diesel to maintain. Upgraded lighting and waste system. Rudder control with a tiller tamer, Magma propane rail mounted BBQ. Anchor, chain & rode. USCG required safety gear and PFDs.
She is suitably powered to get the boat in and out of the slip and for short motors in the marina and has a refrigerator to use in the slip with shore power. A slice of heaven on the water!
Shes a real sailing vessel previously USCG registered and sailed as far as Costa Rica and Central America. She is a pleasure to sail and has a full sail inventory in good condition. There is a comfortable cockpit and cabin with a forward berth suitable for 2 people and a sofa that converts into another bed, a galley, table and head.
For $3500 you share time on Charmony with 3 other partners and split the time on a common online calendar, each having a contracted right to 1/4 of the time each month. Currently two 1/4 shares are available. Buy both for $6000 and you will be contracted for half the time each month!
You pay $150/month covering 1/4 of the slip fee, monthly bottom cleaning, liability and a Boat US towing policy. There is an initial $200 maintenance fund from each partner to allow the managing partner to address minor repairs & expenses. Its a great way to share the expense of having a boat while enjoying its use. One agreed upon partner manages payments for simplicity and everyone does their part to keep Charmony in working order and clean for everyone to use.
