This strong command bridge cruiser is ready to head out for the summer season and is perfectly suited to the Pacific Northwest.
A commercial-grade hull with well-thought-out modifications including a Lewmar bow thruster, extended hull and rolling chocks has increased the efficiency and sea handling characteristics. The current owner religiously maintains all systems in a ‘ready to go’ state so this boat is prepared to leave the dock at any time and take its next owners exploring the coast.
Permaglass Plastics was a respected British Columbia manufacturer of commercial fishing boats. During the slowdown in the fishing industry in the early 80’s Permaglass made 11 pleasure craft versions on their commercial fishing hulls. The hull is thick, strong and solid, as commercial fishing boats need to be. The superstructure is strong and functional with a traditional cruising layout. With the recent additions of the extended hull and stabilizing fins, this Permaglass 33 cruises more efficiently with less bow-rise and rolling. Its happy place is running at 1900 RPM making 8 knots at 1 gallon per hour. It will take you from Nanaimo to Desolation Sound for about 9 gallons of fuel.
This boat was repowered in 2008 with a fully rebuilt 200 hp Volvo TDMA41B diesel and has 800 hrs of run time since the installation. The Walter V-Drive was rebuilt in 2020. The maintenance logbook is exactly what any new owner wants to see. Preventative maintenance is regularly done and not ignored. Engine and transmission fluids changed every 100 hours, impellers, anodes, filters, etc. all changed on a regular schedule.
This boat is strong, well maintained, with simple and effective systems and will take care of its new owners for years to come.
