Currently on the hard in Auckland, upside down and mostly under cover.
Cabin and decks removed, in storage with boat. Complete with propshaft, tube and prop and rudder. Internal jackshaft missing.
Fordson Major 60 hp diesel and Parsons box currently in separate storage. Heat exchanger has a leak. With water cooled dry stack exhaust manifold.
Heavy wide gunnels are probably a later addition.
An historian says the original name may be carved into the forward top plank. Believed to be "Princess", built in St Marys Bay. Gunnels not removed yet as they are helping hold the shape.
Engine was rebuilt with bearings, pistons, rings and valve grind before coming ashore and did very few hours. Has been run several times ashore.
She was hauled out for a complete refit and rebuild which has not happened.
Due to changed circumstances she must now go to someone else who can do it.
Pictures are of Isabellamary as she is and one shortly before she came out.
She is for sale with rent paid to the yard to the end of the month of sale.
Price includes motor, box, and other parts listed.
Could be sold without motor and gearbox. Price $1600 including engine and box, as is where is.
