Like New 2013 Melonseed Skiff # 478 “Skylark”  $14,000  $13,000

Dark blue hull, ivory deck, tanbark sail

 

Centerboard model

 

“Skylark” is as close to a brand new Melonseed as you will ever see, but priced nicely below her full retail value when new. Her total on the water time is less than 4 ½ hours, most of that in fresh water.  She has not been in the water the for past three years, lovingly cared for, covered and stored in a heated garage.

 

Optional equipment included the mooring cover, name and pinstripe, oars, Cetol finish on the woodwork, a US ensign and flagstaff on the rudder head, the anchor package and cushions.

 

The accompanying Loadrite trailer was purchased new with the boat in 2013 and has the upgrade larger 12” wheels & a spare tire, custom fitted for Melonseed. The trailer hubs were repacked with synthetic Amsoil marine lubricant and Bearing Buddies.  There are less than 200 miles on trailer and it is in pristine condition.

 

All original paperwork on boat and trailer available.

Here are the “Owner’s comments:

 

"After sailing on Roger's Melonseed the was no other name for me but "Skylark"; an old Jazz standard by Ella Fitzgerald and Wynton Marsalis. She moves seamlessly through the water with a grace that is impossible to capture. I only wish I had more time at the tiller.  However, arthritis, old ski injuries and years of sea kayaking have sadly caught up with both shoulders so it’s time so see the beautiful “Skylark” move on to another owner who can fully appreciate her beauty, fantastic sailing qualities and enjoy the Melonseed Experience.”
