This Evans Chesapeake Deadrise for sale has it all!
Sometimes a boat comes along that has so much room and so many features it's not easy to take it all in. This Evans 38 was built in 2006 by David Evans of Crisfield, Maryland, in the heart of the Eastern Shore waterman society. Never used commercially, she has always been for cruising/ pleasure only. She is a ONE OWNER BOAT.
Powered by a single QSC 8.3 Cummins diesel she cruises at 18 knots with a wide open throttle speed of 23 knots. A Side Power bow thruster helps make docking a breeze. Trim tabs allow proper alignment. A windlass provides ease of use while anchoring. There is no engine box, all equipment is mounted below deck inside the house. A full length skeg protects the four blade bronze propeller, the draft is 4' 6".
A queen size berth with Tempur-Pedic mattress is forward with an enormous single head compartment with Dometic Sealand marine toilet and holding tank system. For comfort there is air conditioning and heat, provided by an Onan E-series generator along with dual rooftop mount HVAC units. There is also a very large closet/hanging locker along with access to the wiring and systems of the helm.
Aft of the helm to starboard is a large galley up with maple countertop, Nova Cool refrigeration, dual burner propane stove, stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressure water, storage areas and drawers, plus a built in wastebasket with a swinging horizontal door. Six 3-speed 12v Bora fans provide saloon air circulation.
To port is a large maple dining table with fiddles on hydraulic cylinders to convert to a double bunk. An extended settee with a long, flat foot rail for comfort provides lots of out-of-sight storage. A pop-up Samsung flat screen tv resides in the corner of the cabin that stays out of view until it's time to use it. A Glomex antenna gives good reception the old fashioned way.
For audio entertainment, a Clarion stereo with multiple Klipsch speakers sounds great, both in the cabin and the cockpit. Multiple batteries and a Xantrex charger keep the electrical system stable.
The cockpit is extremely large with room for lots of folding chairs and many (many) guests. There is also a transom door for ease of entry via the full width PlasTeak swim platform. There are fishing rod holders mounted on the side rails and transom. A hot and cold shower is placed on the port side of the cabin back. There is a large sliding door with a quality hasp lock system and a sliding window on the galley side. The propane locker is mounted flush on the cockpit sole with a fiberglass propane tank. There are multiple, bolt down, diamond plated hatches in the cockpit as well to access steering gear, shaft coupling, etc.
The cabin house has Diamond SeaGlaze windows all around (including the windshield), with insect screens for the insides and Textilene mesh covered snapped on the outside. Overhead hatches are mounted strategically with Textilene mesh covers and insect screens as well.
The helm seat is upholstered with the same material as the settee and large enough for two to sit comfortably along with a foot rest. A stainless steel destroyer wheels provides steering, as well as the Side Power bow thruster controls. There is a Uniden ES/UM625C VHF radio and speaker, a CM Smartcraft provides depth, speed and engine read outs.
A stainless steel water heater, water tanks, 300 gallon fuel tank, holding tank as well as the Onan generator are mounted below the cabin sole with access via a large hatch and ladder.
Aluminum handrails mounted on the cabin top provide safety while moving forward on deck, as well as an oversized aluminum bow rail system. There is a Lewmar windlass with plow anchor and swivel mounted at the bow.
LED navigation lights are all around, providing a great safety feature while moving in limited visibility conditions.
