    Default 73 Biesemeyer

    I picked up this 73 biesemeyer couple years back. Its almost a bare hull. It seems pretty solid but I'm not sure if its worth putting the money into.. any info would be helpful at this point.. I'll post some pics once I figure how! ..

    I'm not an expert. I can only tell you from my experience with my boat. Check out the wood. Cut a few small holes in the transom and check out the wood in there. Mine looked like peat moss inside. I ended up replacing nearly every piece of wood in my boat -floor, stringers, transom, gunnel (one), dash...

    Thanks Texgo, I'll drill on it today, see what's inside... its was painted inside and looks like there's been some glass work on the stringers, I'm taking that as a bad sign.

    Good advice above. My friend had the same hull a couple years ago. I almost bought it from him. What I gathered from the research I did was that they are built like tanks and are heavy. They take a lot of power to perform well, but depending on what you're after performance wise it may be what you're looking for. Good cruiser for sure. Pros: Beisemeyer. Well built. Cons: Heavy.

    Thank you sideways, very helpful info. I also have a 73 Kona in decent shape, not sure which one to tackle first. The Biesemeyer definitely will take more $cake$ in the long run due to all the missing hardware and what not while the Kona is complete. What's your thoughts on my Kona hull as for handling and pros & cons? Konas set up with a 455 (450hp) and a Jacuzzi while the Biesemeyer will have a 454 with maybe 500hp and a berk 12jc.

    Im not very familiar with the Kona hulls, but from what I do know they are decent. If you look up a guy on here with the name "Holorin Hal" he has some very good build threads on Kona's that he's built. That's kind of a toss up. Im not a fan of the Olds or the Jaccuzzi but ideally I think you would want the chevy and berk in the Kona hull. If the Kona is a full stringer boat. If not then its a toss up between the two hulls. You're probably aware that whatever money you invest into either boat you are more than likely not going to get back, but I do know that a boat with Chevy power and a Berkeley is going to be more desirable than an Olds/jaccuzzi. Maybe you wouldn't lose your butt quite as bad with the chevy/berk combo. That's my .02 cents, which is .03 cents short of a nickel lol.

    I looked the Kona over today and its not in all that bad of shape. Its a full stringer hull and was last in the water about 3 years ago when the olds gave up the rod thru the block! I picked it up in trade... think I'll tackle the kona and hopefully find someone to save the Biesemeyer from become landfill, hate to see these old hulls destroyed. Thanks for the help sideways.
