"Eleanor" is a classic cold molded (double diagonal Philippine mahogany) fiberglass sheathed in epoxy resin hull built by Huckins in 1951. The vessel received a major refit in 1999, which included new diesel engines, vee-drive transmissions and a new diesel generator. During the 18 month refit the vessel was re-wired and re-plumbed, and the refit was very comprehensive to bring her up-to-date as a structurally and mechanically sound vessel. She is a rare restored Huckins Ortega model with much of the original hardware to retain her classic look. Her refit was undertaken with the thought of retaining a simple 12-volt boat that is owner friendly to service and maintain.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a classic diesel powered Huckins that has been upgraded and maintained to a very high standard. The refit for this classic Huckins included a re-power with Yanmar diesels which are highly desirable for a Huckins due to their lighter weight and dependability. These engines are well maintained and have very low hours (under 700.) The bilges are in bristol condition having been cleaned well and painted bilge gray. The re-wiring and re-plumbing during the refit brings the vessel up to current standards. The boat has always been stored under cover in fresh water and has been yard maintained under the current ownership. The boat is in pristine condition!!
