50' (15.00 m) 50 Convertible-Shell Horizons

For Sale

Flag of Registry: United States


This 1996 50' Post has been meticulously cared for by her experienced owner and has never been fished. With low original hours on her well-maintained MAN engines and significant upgrades and updates made in 2017 (over $40,000 spent) this yacht is turnkey ready for her new owners. The 50' Post was one of the most successful models ever for the company and was in production from 1989 through 2009, an unparalleled model run with over 100 50's delivered over that timeframe. "Shell Horizons" offers a spacious 3-stateroom interior and features the fit and finish that Post was known for, particularly in her cabinetry and joinery. The 50' provides a comfortable ride with efficient operation thanks to her solid glass bottom, wide beam, and low-deadrise modified-V hull. 

Some of the more notable features on this yacht include:

  • MAN Engine Package with only 2000 hours
  • 3-Stateroom, 2-Head Layout
  • Fiberglass Swim Platform with Transom Door
  • $40,000 Spent on Upgrades/Updates in 2017
  • New Bottom Job and Cutlass Bearings - April 2018
  • Exterior Waxed - April 2018
  • New Depthfinder Installed - April 2018
