Bay Point Yacht Brokerage is solely owned and operated by Douglas Cruthirds, a lifelong resident of Biloxi, MS. I've always been in the marine service industry, opening my own marine service business in l987 which included Detroit, Caterpillar and Cummings repairs. I worked my way out of the bilges and held a 100 ton captains license with sail endorsement. I have captained private yachts up to 100 feet and owned vessels up to 60 feet. I opened and owned Bay Point High and Dry Marina for 10 years until it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. I have been in the marine business for over 45 years. I look forward to assisting you with the purchase or sale of your vessel. I am very knowledgeable and try to fit my clients with the boat they will be happy with, rather than just selling a boat. I do not hustle my listing. Most all my listings are from word of mouth from prior clients and friends. I believe in service after the sale and remain in contact with my clients when needed.
This boat is in awesome condition. I know everyone is wanting the C-30's but hear me out on this boat. Engineroom has space to service engines. Which cuts cost of mechanic wages. She has C-18 Cats that prove to be very fuel efficent. 27-28kts cruise burning about 72 gph. 7.8 kts at 2 gph. The C-30's will cruise at 30kts burning 112 gph. So to cruise 3 kts faster you will burn 40 gph more which is @ $4.00 gal = $160.00 a hour more to operate. To rebuild these motors is almost half of the cost of the C-30's. 6 cylinder C-18 vs 12 cylinder C-30.. 2012 hull repainted. New ice chipper in custom box on transom. New bridge curtains. New carpet. New release chair in cockpit. Boat is owned by a trucking company and diesel repair shop owner. It is always kept in "tip top" shape. She should survey "Bristol condition". Owners are moving up in size.
