Mainship Corporation was formed in 1978 with the launch of a 34 foot cruiser; comfortable, affordable and economical at planing speeds, the vessel soon captured the attention of the market.The 34 footer was to be the first of many successes for Mainship. Their new range of cruisers were so well received that the company soon outgrew its existing facilities; a new plant was built in Marlboro, NJ and when this again proved to too small for the growing business, the operation moved to St.Augustine, Florida in 1992; the company went on to build over 1200 of these traditional style cruisers.But tastes change and in the 1980s consumer culture was on the rise and bigger and flashier was better. Mainship changed with the times and built a Mediterranean range of cruisers which it launched in 1988. The new range were sleek, fast, shallow displacement cruisers and although the new line was popular for several years, it wasn’t long before John and Warren decided to return to the formula which had proved so successful: classic recreational trawlers and pilot boats. Boats that were not only stylish, safe and well built but which offered a range of economical diesel engine options.Sensing another change in the market, the brothers went back to the drawing board and came up with a new range of cruisers that were to eventually move them back into a market leading position after the first was launched in 1996. Again the brothers had correctly sensed changes in the market and their sales demographic. People were again looking closely at the cost of fuel and many buyers wanted vessels that were strong performers but didn't cost the earth to run.Since then Mainship has gone from strength to strength, expanding its international dealership while maintaining the highest standards of American craftsmanship. Today, from those humble beginnings over 150 years ago, Mainship Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer of recreational trawlers and pilot boats. The company Henry Luhrs inspired by his hard work and love of the sea lives on.This fine Mainship 47 has only 1050 hours on cat 3208 diesels2 staterooms2 heads with showers2019New bottom paintReconditioned props and shaftsNew cutlass bearingsNew zincsNew motor mounts, both enginesAll New hoses and clampsNew carpet through outNew complete canvass2018New ac pump3 new 3700 gph bildge pumpsSuper clean boat in great conditionForward and aft staterooms both with private Vacuflush heads and showersWasher/dryerThe ice maker in cockpitLarge stateroom closets4 AC units2 sofas w/1 pull out bed
