1961 Breuil 36 Sport Fisher

Newport Beach, California



 “They don’t make them like this anymore” 

This classic vessel is a prize-winning classic beauty, built with quality and style in mind. With its lapstrake mahogany hull, solid deck, and glassed in below-waterline hull, it's a heavy boat built to handle rough seas.

The Crusader 454LT engines are relatively new, and the open teak cockpit, custom fighting chair, and large sun pads are designed for comfort and functionality. The varnished woodwork and full sunshade covering add to its classic look, while the custom deck crane, Avon dinghy, and flybridge with hardtop and enclosure provide ample space for fishing or cruising.

The salon features teak flooring, large windows, a galley with
mahogany cabinets and stainless steel appliances, and an
entertainment center with TV, satellite, and Bose sound system.

Maintained by a true yachtsman, this vessel is in flawless, pristine condition and would make an excellent sportfisherman or coastal cruiser.
The owner is open to trades, but what that trade could be is not specified.
