I am scaling down and want to see if anyone might be interested in completing the refitting process of an 1981 Mariner 39 Center Cockpit. The boat is near Solomons Island, MD.

Sadly, I just don' thave enough time to work on the boat anymore. Below is a list of some of the things that have been done to ther boat so far.


It has a remanufactured Perkins 4-108 engine (less than 27 hour). I cleaned and relined the engine room with new sound insulation. All new exhaust system and hoses.

I replaced all of the portlights with bronze New Found Metal.

All of the hatches were removed, cleaned and powder coated. New lexan panels were put on them.

I installed new edson pedestal and got the compass serviced. Wheel was polished to look like new.

All new running rigging.

New chainplates and backing plates.

Soda blasted the bottom and put on 4 coats of west system barrier coat.

New traveler and block system.

New schaefer genoa tracks was installed.

I serviced all of the winches.

The windlass was sent off for rebuild by the manufacturer.

I removed the water tanks, stripped the inside coating and epoxy coat them and reinstalled the tanks.

All stanchions and their bases were removed and polished.Those that show wear were replaced with new custom fabricated pieces.

New teak hand rails were istalled on the cabin top.

Fuel tank was steam cleaned.

The teak panels around the portlights were replaced with epoxied plywood panel and off white laminate. Similarly, the headliner was removed and replaced with the laminate panels.


The boat deck needs a good cleaning and paint. There is no soft spot of rotted area on the deck. Most of the work to be completed are interior wood work, some teak and holy sole, and cushions.

The main sail is the original and needs to be replaced. The genoa is in relatively good condition but does have black marks on the suncover. There is a cruising spinnaker with a sock for light air. This would be an ideal boat for someone who has time to finish it and take her off cruising for long distances.


I will listen to any offer.
