General Details


In 1988 the original owner purchased this 39’ Topaz from the Miami Boat Show as the Topaz featured 39’ demo with every option available at that time. Shortly after taking possession of the boat the owner decided to add a marlin tower at Bausch Towers. Subsequently, in 2001 Whiticar Boatworks built a custom hardtop for the boat. In 2004 the boat was repowered at Whiticar with Cummins 6CTA 480hp engines which currently have only 530 hours on the new power.

Highlights include: New Cummins 6CTA engines in 2004, new Westerbeke generator in 2002, custom tower added shortly after boat was purchased, custom hardtop built by Whiticar, teak covering boards added by Whiticar, teak/holly flooring for interior done by Whiticar, helm air conditioning, spare props, ALL NEW Isinglass12/2012 with custom privacy covers for the isinglass. Props and shafts were pulled and scanned 10/2012, bottom was painted and hull was waxed 10/2012, new dripless shaft seals 10/2012, new cutlass bearings 10/2012 and boot stripe was repainted.

This is an extremely well kept one-owner boat that has been cared for, loved, and updated by the same owner for 25 years.  See full specs for details.
