Used Boats

 Used Maas boats are in demand.

We are eager to have boats for the multitudes dreaming of owning a used boat. Contact us if you want to sell your Maas boat. If you want to list your used Maas shell here, here’s what to do:

  • write your own ad and email it to us. Include the year your shell was built, its condition, its features and optional equipment, any accessories or related gear, your price and how to contact you. Let us know if photos are available (or send them to us).
  • We’ll then post your ad and also email it to those who’ve told us they seek a Maas like yours.
  • Any further negotiation and communication is between you and the prospective buyer.
  • If we can help transport your shell to the buyer (somewhere between where we do business and the Maas Boat Company), please let us know.

If you are interested in a boat listed here, contact the seller directly. As of  September 15, 2018  I know of three used Maas shells now available (except for those listed by others in the classifieds at row2k.com or on Craigslist).

  1.  2002 Maas Aero Classic.

    Was given a dose of TLC last year: inspected bow to stern, sanded & repainted. In great condition. Located in Central Oregon, but very good chance to work with Evergreen Rowing to transport. $3500, plus Dreher oars (negotiable). Liz Sumner, liz.sumner@gmail.com and 541-213-8723. Feel free to text me.

  2. Maas 2004 carbon Flyweight in good condition with Concept2 oars. Double black centerline pinstriping on both decks. $4,000 or best offer.  Located on Vashon Island, WA. Contact me at: kmperla@comcast.net  Karen Perla

3.  2002 carbon Classic Aero: located in Tacoma, $3500 with Dreher sculls

I am selling my beloved yellow Carbon Fiber MAAS Aero Rowing Shell with carbon fiber oars. I bought this boat to learn how to scull and fell in love with the boat and the sport. This boat is very stable for a rowing shell. I’ve rowed it over 1,000 miles in all kinds of sea state. It’s like the Willy’s Jeep of rowing shells, it just keeps going even in the rough stuff. I have rowed it many times in 2’-3’ wind waves on the Puget Sound. This one is the rare Carbon Fiber construction which makes it stronger and lighter than the standard version. It weighs only 35 lbs, which makes it more responsive in the water, but more importantly easier to carry, launch, car-top, etc…

I rowed this boat in many open-water races including the Bainbridge Island Marathon and even the Seventy48 which is 70 miles from Tacoma to Port Townsend. The boat is stable enough to strap dry bags on the decks and do an overnighter.

The boat was manufactured in 2002, but is in good shape. The hull design and performance is the same as current models. Includes sliding seat, and carbon fiber oars. It also has the integrated compass upgrade. The boat is very dry on the inside and has been stored in a boat shed it’s entire life. It has a few scratches from beach launches and haul outs at the races. All spare parts are still available and the local distributor Evergreen Rowing is very helpful with any questions that arise. I am selling to get the faster but less stable MAAS 24.

Given the high demand, used boats move quickly. We prefer to help Maas boat owners sell their shells. We maintain a list of rowers in search of used Maas boats, and we do our best to link sellers with buyers. Linking buyers and sellers allows the seller to realize full retail value for their shell and let’s the buyer avoid sales taxes. If the extent of our service is solely to match a buyer with a seller, there is no brokerage fee.

We know that owners of Maas shells appreciate full-service and dealer support throughout the time they own their shell. Maas boat owners can be confident there is a very strong market for their used shell should their situation change and a need arise to sell their loved boat. We are committed to maintaining that market demand and matching it with the limited supply of used Maas shells.

For more information or to get on the list of buyers seeking a used boat, contact Evergreen Rowing. You may also want to check the classified section of Row2K.com, the most active market for used boats. Use the search feature to search for “Maas”. Used shells are also listed on the Noteboard page at soundrowers.org and with increasing frequency on Craigslist.

CONSIGNMENTS

In the rare event when a seller has difficulty finding a buyer or if the seller doesn’t want to handle the sale of his/her shell, Evergreen Rowing will hold any used Maas boat on consignment. If you place your shell with us on consignment, we charge a $300 brokerage fee.
