44's For Sale

 



This is a list of all the 44’s, which I believe are for sale. If you know of any others please contact me (e-mail).

This page is purely set up to help interested buyers come contact with the sellers listed below. The descriptions on this page are from the current owners, so should be checked.

Also some of these boats may no longer be for sale, in which case I would be very grateful if you could update me (e-mail). I would also be very interested to know if you do manage to buy one, so that I can update my "Ex 44ft Lifeboats" page.

IMPORTANT!!! None of these boats come with my recommendation and I have no commercial interest in them whatsoever.

Boat Description
You are looking at a Coast Guard motor life boat. 44ft self righting ship.This ship is in excellent shape and is ready to return to the ocean. It was dry docked in Pasco WA where Matheson Painting spent over one year and $80,000 doing hull maintenance, painting and electrical repair. It has been in fresh water up on the snake river in Washington ever since. I recently brought it down to Portland, Oregon to have the starboard engine replaced by Detroit Diesel in Vancouver Washington. This is a new engine. Not a rebuild. Quality install by the manufacturer themselves.I have had it fitted with new navigational and radio equipment, new batteries and had the engines tuned up and ready to go.Port engine has less than 1300 hours on it and runs great!Both engines start with a touch of button, I mean you do not even hear them crank over, they just fire up, and they run great!This MLB served its Coast Guard life in Monterey Bay, California. Anyone with any history of its service down there please e-mail me so I can finish its history book.It has the original nautical maps from Monterey Bay, the navigational tools and the original wood captains navigational box that the crew of the MLB-44346 freed from the MLB-44336 when it was sold. This navigational box has a beautiful mural of two MLB-44s and a rescue helicopter on the front of it.This ship still has the original canvas hull repair kit, canvas bracket bag, log books, pms book, deck pump in sealed drum, deck pump cover, stearns life jackets (4 adult and 3 child) equiped with whistles and marker lights, helicopter rescue basket with two helmets, 4 red BCSB-1 safety belts for the crew to lock into thier stations, original fire extinguishers and Halon system, light bouy, starboard fire hose, two top mounted search lights, manual rudder system for stearing the ship if you lose all hydraulic pressure, air horn, air wipers, large anchor and rope, deck mounted high power antenna base, collapsing mast for going under low bridges, way to much to list.All twelve bench pads are in perfect condition, not a rip in one of them. There is room to sleep 5 comfortably on the benches. The forward cabin has an escape hatch that opens up to let the moon light in. The galley has a fresh water reserve, hot cup, and sink. The head has a portable marine latrine. First aid kit, flares, smoke, and flags are included. Ocean ready!Misc. info:Draft at operating displacement 3'2", draft at full load 3'6", hoisting weight 35,360lbs, shipping weight 33,060 lbs Hull material is alloy steel, superstructure material is aluminum, 2gm 6v53 engines 185hp each @2800 rpm.Electrical system is 24 volt dc, 2 each 30"dx 25"p x 2"bore propellersfuel capacity (diesel) 330 gallons. Fire pump, self righting and self-bailing ship.

Special Characteristics: Self-righting (if overturned, the vessel will return to an upright position in 30 seconds or less). 110 boats were built, all at the Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay, Maryland, 106 for the Coast Guard and 4 for foreign countries. The first was launched in 1962 as 44300 and the last, 44409 in 1972. To give you some idea, these boats were designed to operate up to 50 miles offshore in 30 foot waves and 20 foot surf close into shore. They have room for 21 survivors below decks and have approximately a 250 nautical mile cruising range. This ship was also designed to tow up to 125 tons. Currently these ships are being used as tow boats, dive boats, fishing boats and of course the other governments around the world are buying them up to use them for rescue operations. They are also being converted for recreational use, with water tight compartments that can hold four crew and up to 21 survivors there is clearly lots of room below deck.
