1987 WELLCRAFT, 3200 ST. TROPEZ

SUMMARY OF EVENTS

This summary is for informational purposes only.  This is as much information as we can possibly gather regarding the 1987 Wellcraft (WELC2740L6873200) and is not intended to determine condition, seaworthiness, or required mechanical repairs needed.

Overview

On January 10, 2018, the watercraft sank approximately 5’, covering the dual Twin inboard v-drive engines and the Cuddy Cabin.  The boat was immediately recovered by pumping out the water and repairing a valve leak. The vessel is now sea worthy and has been afloat since that day.

Cause

The owner filed an insurance claim and an investigation followed. The determination of the vessel submerging was determined to be a starboard engine fresh water valve being left open during the winterization procedure that allowed sea water into the sea strainer. On January 10th, Port of Peoria experienced a warm weather thaw, allowing water to leak into the engine compartment, submersing the vessel. It is noted that one engine experience valve failure, not both! A detailed report is available upon request.

Insurance claim

Due to a clause in the insurance policy, the claim was denied sighting improper winterization. The owner filed an appeal, arguing his procedures were followed and the boat was properly winterized, hence, the starboard valve must have been defective, not closing completely when turned to the closed position.

Tragic turn of events

June 20th, 2018, prior to the final determination of the insurance appeal, the owner suffered a fatal heart attach and passed away. At that point, Illinois State Credit Union became the sole owner of the boat, as-is, where-is!

End result.

We are selling the vessel at absolute auction Oct 6th, 2018 to the highest bidder with no reserve.

preview for the boat on September 22nd from 10am until noon. The preview will be at Detweiller Marina on the water (2 Caroline St. Peoria, Il). I will be available to answer questions and will have inspection reports/insurance determinations available for viewing.

Also, please be advised that the boat does not have a trailer and the Marina fees are paid thru October 31st, 2018. The buyer will be responsible to contact the harbor master after the sale to make arrangements for the future.
