Looking for a BCC

I wish to purchase a BCC in the near future. Obviously I am somewhat
flexible about everything - but ideally what I am looking for is as
follows:
Factory finished boat. I have inspected some 20 BCC over the years,
but have never seen an improvement over the factory layout.
No teak decks
Standard cabin height - not 6’6" option.
Must be in immaculate condition
Tanbark sails
nice complement of electronics (nice, but not necessary)
refrigeration (again, nice but not essential)
dinghy and / or liferaft

Will use for serious bluewater voyaging - any equipment to that end
would be a plus.
Sounds like I want a new boat. If I can’t find a good used one, I
will probably order a new one.
If anyone knows of a BCC that will become availabe in the next 12
months, please contact me by e-mail.
Thank you for your troubles.

Max, I know Tom and Anice Walker have put Aloha on the market, and
it’s listed on this website as well. Check at
http://members.aol.com/calypsonia/bcc/bcc.htm under boats for sale.
We have sailed with Tom and Anice; Aloha is now in service and in
excellent shape. Definitely worth checking out.

There is a BCC in Houston which might be available, although
have not seen any references to it in the market. I met the owner
last year and took an up-close look at the boat. I can’t quite
remember the owner or boat name. Mike Pearson or Roger Olson
might know. Not sure if the boat is still in Houston. It was there
last year though.

She is all bronze, and in mint condition. The bits appeared to have
at least 20 coats of varnish. The owner told me that the boat
circumnavigated when new, and has been docked since. The owner also
said that he was in the process of having a larger version custom
built.

Mark,
I think you are referring to the boat I bought a few months ago.
My wife and I keep Sea Star, hull # SFJBC076E686 and formerly named
Swift, at Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrock, Tx.

David Kent

David,

Well, you certainly bought a beautiful boat! If this is the same
boat I saw, then I especially liked contrast of unfinished teak
bulwarks and varnished trim. You must be very happy with
Sea Star!

P.S. Do you happen to have the mold to the bronze bulwark post
caps on Sea Star? If so, can I call you? My direct email address is
MRGEARHA@yahoo.com if you’d be willing to give me your phone number.

Thanks,
Mark Gearhart
