Full keel, shoal draft 3'2".

Fold-down fiberglass mast perfect for the Great Loop or other routes where bridges are impediments. The Schucker 430, 436, and 437 have identical hulls, but different layouts.

The Schucker 430 has a good sized cockpit and wide walkarounds for easy access to the foredeck. The pilothouse has doors on the port and starboard side, plus the aft door into the cockpit. Overall, the exterior appears very well kept.
A feature of the head is that it is fresh water flush which eliminates many of the issues caused by a salt water flush.

One double is a pull-out of the port settee in the pilot house and the other is the converted dinette in the lower saloon.

Many ways to heat the boat - two reverse cycle units, diesel Dickinson Newport Heater in pilothouse, Force 10 propane in saloon, two Red Dot heaters.

The pilothouse has opposing bench seating - the starboard side converts to a double bed. There is a fixed helm seat to starboard and a chart table to port. Down and forward of the pilothouse is the main cabin. The U-shaped galley is to starboard composed of a propane cooktop, AC refrigerator, 12V Adler-Barbour built-in top loading fridge/freezer, custom dual stainless sink with solar vent above. Opposite the galley is a large hanging locker, storage, and bench seating. The master berth is a convertible dinette on the starboard side of the main cabin. The head and shower stall are in the forepeak.

This spacious layout and bright pilothouse are great features for sailors who want to live-aboard.

Broker's Comments

Note, This boat has just come from the boat yard with new zincs, bottom paint, mast washed and waxed! August 2017

This Schucker 430 Motorsailer is a very versatile craft. It is well-equipped with modern systems. The large pilot house offers good light and visibility from the windows all around. Port and starboard side doors to the walkaround decks make for easy docking and line handling. Down below is the inviting, colorful galley with custom sinks, propane cook stove, microwave, two refrigerators and toaster oven with miles of counter space with ample storage in cupboards and many drawers. What a comfortable live-aboard. Enclosed shower, four heat sources, a serious double bed contribute to a traveling home on the water. Why pay expensive Seattle rent when you can own this boat and live on the water?
