Huckins 40 Sportsmen

If you like retro 50's you will love Mercury. She has been meticulously restored and updated by a well known Northwest marine surveyor. Mercury still maintains the classic Huckins lines but is mechanically modern in every way. She has been updated with Yanmar diesels, Webasto hydronic heat, New electronics, New stove and freezer, New canvas, New paint and much more. The current owner has invested over $250,000 over the last 15 years in capital improvements and maintenance. The bulk of the restoration occurred in 2004. The current owner has always kept her moored under cover and in fresh water. Now at our docks!
