37' Trailer with 31' Commander on it.

Fellow Commandeers,

I have an All-Star trailer with my 31 sitting on top of it. It's a 37' trailer rated for 22,000 lbs, so the 9,000 lbs of the 31 are nothing for it, but you always want trailers to be overkill, no? It has 3 axles with electro-hydarulic brakes an ALL 3 axles. Bought trailer new for $17,000 ten years ago. Trailer has carried up to a 41' Hatteras, so the load rating is true. Willing to let it go for $5,000 BUT the boat has to go with it, that's right, you get a free 31' with the trailer. The Commander is a 1972, second to last hull made in the US, interior is stripped and ready for the restoration that I know I will likely never undertake, so I need to rip that band aid off. I can take more photos of the boat if wanted, and yes, the boat will look much cleaner once I pressure clean all that tree stuff off it. 10824347871?profile=RESIZE_710xTrailer has six tires are very new, installed two years ago when I brought the boat up from Miami, so they only have about 300 miles on them, no dry rot. don't know how bearings are but at most they would need some grease, not replacing. Trailer is in Gainesville, northern Florida.

  • Very interested - please give me a call or email. I'd really like to see more photos of the boat. What's the history, hours on engines ect,,,  Jodypackerfan1@yahoo.com or (262) 994-8341 I'll be driving through Gainsvill in about ten days I'd like to look at it - thanks, JFK

  • Jody,

    That item of interest here is the trailer, value wise. It needs cleaning, degreasing and some rust treatment, but it is all there. The boat is stripped down to the hull on the inside and engines are still there but they are gone. Boat is a complete refit project. Hull is solid and nothing is missing structurally but, again, it is a full project at this point. Can it be redone? Sure, I was going to, but don't expect more than a solid foundation.

  • Rudi,  Thanks for the reply. Can you please give me a call or text? I'd like to chat about coming to look at it - cheers JFK
