Owner Change in Plans = Incredible Opportunity

to Own this Very Special yacht

Unique Custom Sportfisher

This custom sport fisher/cruiser was a very good value at $149, is a steal at $99,500! The electronics package alone is worth twice the current asking price.

"C Major 7th" was designed by the well known Naval Architect Raymond Fageol and built by the famous Kettenburg Marine Boatyard in San Diego, California. The combination of classic lines...good looks...and the impressive array of electronic equipment on this boat literally STOP traffic. This boat went through a to bottom refit three and a half years ago at a cost of over $400,000. The twin 8V71 Detroit Diesels have only 220 hours since they were completely rebuilt...and blueprinted. A brand new Northern Lights 12.0KW genset was installed and currently has only 310 hours. At the time of the refit in 2010, New Electronics were installed along with a Hydraulic Bow Thruster and a lengthy list of custom upgrades.

With an overall length of 44 feet and an impressive beam of 16 1/2 feet...she is a VERY sea kindly vessel and handles like a much larger yacht. She is an ideal/very comfortable platform for both short and long-range fishing adventures as well as simple pleasure cruises. With multiple redundant electronics including dual radar systems, multiple GPS/Chart Plotters, dual SAT Phone systems, Forward Looking Infrared Radar (night vision) and will be able to get there...and back safely.

"C Major 7th" is very special custom yacht that must be seen to be appreciated. Owner's plans have changed and this special yacht must be sold at an incredible value. After reviewing the attached detailed list of specifications and photos, please call to schedule a personal showing.

Don't Delay....this Opportunity will not last long.


Beginning with the forward private cabin, there are bunks to port with a double bed below and over-sized single bed above. Hanging locker...ample storage...and an ensuite wash basin/sink are to starboard. There is a Furuno MFD with GPS/Chart/Radar capability mounted above the bunks on the port side. Moving aft you enter the large salon area. To port is a large u-shaped settee with Hi-Low table in the center. The settee converts to a sleeping areas as well. Directly across from the table to port is a long couch/settee which easily converts to over/under bunks for additional sleeping capacity. Aft and to port is the galley which is outfitted with ALL NEW appliances (Cook Top, Microwave and Commercial Convection Oven). Across from the galley to starboard is a large private head with shower and Vacu-Flush toilet. Moving aft from the salon and up three steps you enter the pilot house area. The pilot house is enclosed (glass/opening windows) on three sides and boasts an incredible array of late model electronics and two helm chairs. There are electronic engine control stations on both the port and starboard sides of the helm station. The electrical panel is located to starboard and there is a new large sized chest freezer to port. Moving aft, there is a custom stainless steel and teak fighting chair and multiple rod holders. Continuing aft and down a couple of steps you enter the very large cockpit ares. There are two large built-in bait tanks....tackle storage and a third helm station for chasing down the big game fish. The cockpit also includes additional rod holders, outriggers, both 120V and 12V electrical outlets and indirect lighting.

With a 16 1/2 foot beam, this is the largest/most spacious 38' boat you will ever see. The impressive beam....hull design...and displacement all make for a very sea kindly and stable ride.
