1998 MELONSEED SKIFF # 169 “AZARIAH”  $7,495

Excellent condition!


Hull RDBMS169E898


Location Charleston, SC


Black hull, beige decks, Tanbark sail


Black Awlgrip hull (very shiny!), beige deck in excellent condition with few blemishes.  The teak has the easy to maintain Cetol finish in good condition, 2 mooring covers, oars, and lifting bridle.


All the items included with the boat and are in very good condition.  The trailer is made by Gator and is the original trailer I purchased when I bought the boat in 1998.  The trailer has never been in the water other than maybe once or twice as I have always used a lifting bridle and hoist to put the boat in the water. The trailer is in good, road-worthy condition, although the lights need to be repaired.


Also note that there a few small chips on the bow (shown in a picture) which are just cosmetic.  There is a chip in the gel coat on the trailing edge of the keel, which is also just cosmetic. I think for a 22 year-old boat, “Azariah” is in excellent condition.


I have owned numerous sailboats and power boats, but I have never had a boat like the Melonseed, a boat that turns heads so quickly. Every time you are out sailing this boat, it draws attention and conversations. Not only is this such a beautiful boat, but it is a joy to sail in all levels of conditions.  If you want a boat that is easy to rig and puts a smile on your face, this is the boat for you.
