I have one. I am trying to upsize. I went and looked at the Flowers 43 a few weeks ago. Ken said he couldn't build me one this year. The other builders are that far out too but I could check again. So .... when is your time frame. Do you have something small I could jump into and fish out of while a new boat is being built?
Can you please email e with the specs and your asking price

How many HP on the engine? Do you have any pictures?

This boat is sometimes featured in Volvo Penta D6 advertising. When launched. The sea trial clocked out at 27mph. I do yearly maintaince in May or June so although the boat is in the water. I don't think It would do 27 right now.
I'm looking for a 39 Willard with a 671. Any if those around?
I flew out to Wisconsin to look at that 38 northern bay with check in hand. Hull was dull with lots of scratches and a real bad gouged from a chain. Also the deck and roof was spongy. Not from root but from the lack of supports. Can go on but won't. Wasted trip!
Just want to make this clear, this 38nb was finish be the owner. Deck,top and down below. NB does a great job!
