1981 Henriques Maine Coaster w/ Bow Thruster

This 1981 Henriques Maine Coaster, located in Bridgeport, CT was re-powered with a Cummins 450C 8.3L diesel in late 2013 and features a Vetus bow thruster for easy maneuvering.

This is a versatile solid fiberglass boat that is well-suited for family cruising, fishing, or as a dive boat. In addition to the new engine, the current owner has made several significant upgrades to the hull, engine and major systems. In the unlikely event of main engine failure, the drive shaft can be connected to the generator engine and power the boat at 4 knots – and if in dire circumstances you’ll have the added comfort of an ACR EPIRB (2011). 

The swim platform features an impressive two-piece aluminum Christmas tree ladder and a Kuuma stainless steel grill. The cockpit has plenty of room for seating or fishing and the flybridge has seating for 8. The salon has two bench seats with seating for 4-6, plus a full helm, flat-screen TV and adjustable LED lighting. Below, there’s a new head with shower to port and a galley area to starboard with refrigerator and microwave. The forward cabin sleeps 4 in double-deck berths. The salon and forward cabin are heated and there is an air conditioner in the salon that will cool the entire interior. 

This boat is truly turn-key and ready for years of fun on the water – a solid and renowned hull with all systems redone between 2011 and 2014. As the saying goes, “They don’t build them like they used to…”
