'Volcano' Seaway 25 for sale

Post by GeoffR » Aug 28th, '14, 10:38

Volcano is now for sale for $23,000 without trailer or 28,000 with an "as new" Swiftco 2.9 tonne ATM trailer with electric/hydraulic brakes and electric winch.

We're very reluctant to sell it but can't hang onto everything. Before we advertise it on Boatpoint we'd like to see if we can sell it here to keep it in the TSP family.

This fully restored classic is much better than new, and has new sails (main and #2) and many modern features including fully enclosed bathroom with electric toilet and exhaust fan.

Pressurized water system with sink in galley and bathroom, and 90 litre Vinyl Ester water tank.

Toilet has 90 litre holding tank with its own macerating pump to empty.

Quirk's eutectic fridge under the steps with power supply.

Huge permanent front v berth and large portside saloon berth.

Electric raisable 300kg keel

Large fibreglass aft lockers.

Folding steps stb stern

Cockpit hot shower pumps from bathroom sink

Bimini fitted, with attached canvas rollout cover to the mast.

Traditional IOR style cassette rudder has a storage slot in the deck.

Almost new Tohatsu 9.8hp outboard with 7 amp charging.(engine has about 10 hours on it)

"Volcano" is a 36 year old Seaway 25 that was wrecked in cyclone Ului in the Whitsundays.

We have restored the boat to its former glory after an extensive rebuild spanning two years.

The progress and extent of the rebuild can be seen on the Volcano Restoration thread on Trailer Sailer Place.

Geoff,

if it was a Ross I would be banging on your door.

Youve done a great job and the new owner will be one lucky person.

Best of luck,

Aza

Volcano sold today.....the first looker bought it.
We should be jubilant but it's just a bit sad to see such a nice boat go.

Volcano has provided us many years of delightful cruising throughout Moreton Bay, Great Sandy Straits and the Whitsundays. Phil has continued to modify this Seaway 25 to a more capable, competitive cruiser and comfortable trailer sailer. We are also sad to sell, regrettably its time for us to move onto motor cruising.

Congratulations on the sale. Volcano certainly is a beautiful boat! I hope the new owner loves it as much as you did and appreciates all the painstaking hours you put into the restoration

Sue, the post reporting it has been sold was in 2014; it's back on the market!

yes Volcano is back on the market with upgrades to improve performance. We have housed her when not sailing in our enclosed shed. She's in immaculate condition as is the 2.9 tonne (as new) SWIFTCO trailer. She certainly will be enjoyed by the new owner, as much as we have.

thanks we were stuffed around by the first potential buyer, this old guy was 2.5 hours late and when he arrived all he wanted to do was chat about America.

We had a lovely couple yesterday who are very interested.

The couple who looked at Volcano were very impressed and said it was the best presented boat they had seen to date. The husband was particularly appreciated the trailer condition and modifications. The couple left as they pondered the need to upgrade their vehicle as they could only tow 1800 kg.
