Default 2018 Owens & Sons Aluminum Slide-On - 21,000 lb. - SOLD SOLD SOLD

Year: 2018
Make: Owens & Sons Aluminum Slide-On
Originally for: 39 Yellowfin
Capacity: 21,000 lb GVWR
I-Beam: 10" (this is super important, I would never want a 21,000 lb trailer with 8" I-Beam)
Brakes: Electric Over Hydraulic, Deemaxx Stainless and Titan Brakerite Components
Extras: Extreme Duty Bow Stop, 2 Spare Tires and a Spare Hub
Price: REDUCED $11,900
I purchased this trailer in Dec 2018 after it had been used to haul a 39YF once up to South Carolina. I have never splashed it, literally dropped my 38 Sterling on it while I was having some work done on it. This was originally ordered from Owens with Stainless Deemaxx brakes on 2 axles and surge actuator. I have since converted to EOH with breakaway kit and have a brand new Deemaxx kit with all of the T's and brake lines ready to install as soon as I get the boat off of the trailer. On issue I see on a lot of larger trailers is that the brake actuators get wet when mounted too low - this is elevated on a stand to prevent any damage which loading/unloading. I also added a tongue extension and extreme duty bow stop - I just like the look of the bow stop and it fit with the overbuilt nature of the trailer. While adding those things, I found some nice 1/2" SS cap nuts so I capped off all U-bolt ends.

I was days away from cutting the bunks and fitting this trailer to the Sterling when I won a Boatmaster RTT trailer on government auction. For those not in the know, it's a stupidly overbuilt military trailer that the government buyers for stupid money. It's one of those things on my list of "stuff you would drop everything and buy," I think some will understand what I mean. Asking $12,900.

Congrats on the RTT (post some pics)

I wonder if this would fit the 40' SeaHunter well?

I'll text you some pics when we pick it up. I don't see why it wouldn't fit the 40 SH, although you might have to lose the fancy bow stop or reweld it to the winch stand. There's a lot of room to move the winch stand up. You would need to modify the bunks as they're currently setup for a double step hull.

Would it fit a 42 Yellowfin?

So on the 42YF, it's a 16,500 lb boat empty with engines, close to trailer's capacity or even over fully loaded. Boat will fit the trailer pretty well, but not a perfect fit (you may be 6"-12" off the rear bunk). If using as a maintenance and hurricane haul-out trailer to tow the boat around town, it would be a great choice. If this is to be used for long distance travel often, it is suggested that you look for something with 8000 or 10000 lb axles.

I tried getting him to pop a measurement between the beginning of the rear step and the running surface edge at the back of the boat but he wasn't able to. Hope this gives you some answers.

I would only use it about 2 to 3 times a year but the distance between movement would be about 120 miles.

Yellowfin shows a 2' 4" difference in length between the 39 and 42 & 2000 lbs difference. The trailer's legally rated carrying capacity will be roughly 18,500 lbs, this would be your call as to whether you feel it is the right fit for what you want to do with it.

OK thanks for the info. I was told that if I moved the boat up a little to fit the trailer the weight distribution would be very heavy on the tongue. I also like you said might have to adjust the bunks to the boat to make it fit correctly. At this point I will continue to look for a 42 trailer for the boat. Many thanks!
