1957 ShearWater Whiticar

A beautifully restored Shearwater Whiticar 38. She took first place in the Cruiser 1 Division at the prestigious Madisonville, Louisiana wooden boat show.  Everything from stem to stern, from bilge to bimini top has been restored or replaced.  Owner is sacrificing his pride and joy. Call to see this amazing piece of fishing hardware today.  She won’t last long at this price!!!!   


This is a very typical open/express.  You have a very large and open fishing cockpit and a step up to a helm deck that features a beautiful dinette to port  that converts to a double berth and a large settee/single berth to starboard.  A lower helm allows this classic beauty to be fished short handed.  Stepping down the galley is to port and a full head is to starboard.  Forward of both is a pair of hanging lockers.  There is a port and starboard berth forward of that and plenty of storage in the chain locker for an included boarding ladder and all of the ground tackle.  To make fishing the tide lines even easier, there is a flybridge with two comfortable ladder back chairs. The fit and finishes of this boat will amaze.  Being aboard “Iconic” is like stepping back in time.  It is no wonder that this great vessel won the Cruiser 1 division at the prestigious Madisonville Wooden Boat show in 2016. 


“Iconic” is powered by a set of 8.2L turbo charged Detroit Diesels.  These 4 stroke “fuel sippers” are much newer engines and provide an economical and long cruise with the 400 gallons of diesel she can carry. 


It would be remiss not to mention the great electrical system on “Iconic”.  She has the usual two 12 volt starter batteries for engine starting duties, but her owner has installed two 6 volts batteries as one large 12 volt bank like the serious offshore cruising boats do so you don’t run short on 12 volt power while you are fishing the canyons.  To sweeten the deal, he has installed a Noco Genius GEN3 30 Amp 3 bank waterproof smart charger to take care of battery charging duties.  It was installed in January of 2017 it is that new.

This proud vessel has been lovingly restored to a very high standard.  Her owner is looking for another project to take on and is sacrificing his baby.  Nothing on this boat has gone untouched.  From the bilge to the bimini and from stem to stern, she has been professionally restored and refitted.  The restoration is so new that there are still chalk marks on the bimini top where the measurements were taken  This boat will not last long at this price.
