I have a Boattrader magazine that I looked at this morning, and on some ads the word "Sistership" was used. The make of boat doesn't mean anything due to it could be on a Post, Egg Harbor or other Make of Boat. What does that mean?

Sistership means the same mold or layup/design. May have a few interior modifications but hull layup should be the same.

curtis, "sistership" is a term they use when they don't have a picture of the actual boat they are trying to sell they use a picture of another boatof the same brand and model and theylabel it "sistership".

Helms, engines, towers, and deck layout as I understand it are the same. I believe that the only thing that could be different is the interior furnishing etc.

Garbo (10/24/2007)So every hull is different, except the Sisterships?
A Sister Ship is a ship/boat thatboth are in the same class as each other, and the design of each is almost identical. Mostly (term) used in warships and ocean liners. And date of manufacture is NOT taken into account. Keep in mind the actualboat that is being sold and the one pictured may be of a different value, both due to condition and age.



This is not my boat, but it is a Sister Ship of mine.


This is my boat.....

off route II (10/24/2007)"come on now" what?
The fact that someone is selling a boat and can't (in this day and age) use a actual photo of the one that is being for sale and has to use a photo of a "Sister Ship"...Wouldn't you want a actual photo of the boat for sale, and NOT a "Sister Ship"? I'd be leary of that.
