General Details

The 53 Magnum is a go anywhere, rough water, deep V performance boat. She is the predecesor of the more complicated but faster 56' Magnum (with Arneson drives and more than double the horsepower). THE BASIC HULL AND LAYOUT IS ALMOST THE SAME AND FALCON HAS MANY OF THE 56 UPDATES!

Additional Equipment

This Magnum 53 has a total of only about 2,500 hours on her hull. Totally renovated and priced below other Magnums of her size that have not been this extensively restored! The replacement cost for a new 56' Magnum, the model that replaced FALCON, is well over $2M.

For sale because this owner is moving up to a larger vessel.

FALCON receives continual maintence by the owners full time staff who takes care of three boats and eight collector cars.

Work completed September 2007 includes:
New Bimini top.
New KVH satelite TV receiver
New KVH satphone antenna for portable satphone (not included because seller does not want to give up the number)
New anchor windless Bottom job
Paint touch up

FALCON has the look and interior of a 90s vintage Magnum with sunpad seating, helm pod, fine joiner work and leather.

The drive train is orginal with low hours and the boat is easy to handle during docking, she planes off with the bow raising much less than the new Arneson drive boats. FALCON also has a huge rear storage area below the sunpad that the newer boats do not have because their engines are in the rear. FALCON has half the horsepower of the newer boats so her range is longer and her cruising speed is 21-25 knots, which is less than the Arneson drive boats.
