    Info on a 1975 38sf??

    I am looking at a 38sf that looks like a pretty decent buy. IT has twin diesels, and a huge tuna tower. It has what looks like a diesel generator in it, but it is not clear if it runs.

    Is there any kind a database for these boats? It is a turquoise and white boat from Florida.

    Thanks guys.

    What kind of Sportfisher is it? You can go to sportfisherman.com or thehulltruth.com and they deal mostly with fishing boats and can help. Theres alot to look at on these boats before you spend any money. Unless you are familiar with how the boat is made whether it be a production boat, a cold mold, or plank on frame you will need a surveyor familiar with this type of boat. A 38 is a good size that can be ran by 1 or 2 people but still take on plenty of water. I helped a buddy bring a 38 down from NY to NC this spring and it was a fun trip. His boat was a Florida built boat off a Merritt design.

    It is a Magnum Marine 38ft Sportfisher. I cannot find a lot of information on the sportfisher models. There are a couple listed on the M.M. website for sale, but they are in very differing states of repair. Any information or links would be great.

    Led-the bigger magnums had pretty good reputations. I second the suggestion to check on thehulltruth.com a big fishing boat site and someone there will have some info. I think they are old school cool looking. A detailed hull and engine survey is a must.

    I had a 35' MAGNUM ( 95-2000) twin 400 H.P. Cyclones cruised @28 mph tops @ 39 gps , boat was a WAVE CRUSHER ! Does this boat have a full teak cockpit floor ? Top Banana had a 38 in R.I. some time ago. What do you need to know ? Michael "HIGH LIFE"
