Wanted - BCC

Hi all,

I am looking for a Bristol Channel Cutter for my next liveaboard and cruising boat.

I am looking primarily in the East and Gulf Coast, but I am open to West Coast as well. Maintenance history is more important to me than age or equipment.

My last boat was a Gulf 32 in Washington State. I lived aboard while restoring the boat and exploring Puget Sound. I since have sold the Gulf 32 and am now on the East Coast, where I plan to liveaboard and cruise coastally, until I have saved enough for extended cruising.


Hi Matt,
I’ve got a BCC for sale that has a rich cruising history, but needs TLC and a rig. She is on a very heavy duty commercially made trailer. She is in Washington state. I’m asking $45,000

Thanks David! I believe we spoke last year.

Avei’a looks like a great boat, but needs more TLC than I can offer her right now. If my situation changes and I can take on Avei’a I will certainly reach out.

I hope you are well!

Matt, there are many many BCCs on YachtWorld lying on both coasts, Texas and Canada.

Thanks for your message Richard. I’ve been traveling to view Sam Morse boats listed on brokerage websites and will probably end up moving forward with one of these.

So far the boats I’ve seen have not been quite what I’m looking for (well maintained with simple systems). I may not find what I’m looking for but it’s worth a shot !

Hi Matt, have you seen my Waxwing in Alabama?
Price $25000.

.1977 Bristol Channel Cutter Fairhope, Alabama - Turner Marine Yacht Sales

Carlos, thank you - I will be in touch.

Stan, I have seen Waxwing in person, and I enjoyed the opportunity. The layout is a great use of space, and I found she had some very thoughtful features. Waxwing is certainly a great value at this price.

I need to see more boats before making a decision, but Waxwing is on my list.
