The first day of summer, or summer solstice, is finally here. Time to dust off the beach chairs, buy some sunscreen, and find your beach towels and hats. If you don’t live near a beach you might be going camping, planning a vacation, or heading down to the local pool. Kids are out of school, the blockbuster movie season is about to begin, and the days feel endless. Yes, summer is many people’s favorite season, and with good reason.
Our shoppers have summer on their minds too. We found several remarkable listings that people have put on their watch lists to get you in the mood for summer.
For those with a bigger summer entertainment budget than me, there is this 1983 Morgan 45-4 Sailboat:
The seller assures prospective buyers the boat is in excellent condition, and looking at the photos of it makes us agree with this assessment, at least regarding the boat’s outward appearance. The listing describes the boat:
“The boat is fast, seaworthy and comfortable racer/cruiser with beautiful wood interior and a simple and manageable sail plan, this is an excellent all around boat. With two master cabins, two heads with one separate shower, huge 8 person dining table and a well laid out kitchen, this is probably the best live aboard boat around.”
The boat is located in Florida so, if you do decide to buy it, you can take it for a spin around the Caribbean (the boat is fitted with air-conditioning).
If boating is not your thing, don’t worry, we found an amazing land cruiser to pique your interest. Take a look at this 2007 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager 8389:
This bank-repossessed beauty is a lot cheaper than the sailboat, above, with the added advantage that you don’t need to know how to sail to maneuver it, only how to drive. This is definitely not what I remember RVs looking like, back in the day — my idea of the ultimate camper van is an old converted VW Vanagon like this one. Instead, this RV comes with a ton of great amenities including:
“2 POWER SLIDE OUT ROOMS (LIVING ROOM AND MASTER SUITE)
LEATHER SOFA / SLEEPER
(2) LEATHER CHAIRS
37″ FLAT SCREEN TV IN LIVING ROOM
3 BURNER STOVE TOP
CONVECTION MICROWAVE OVEN
REFRIGERATOR / FREEZER
DINNING TABLE WITH TWO CHAIRS
20″ FLAT SCREEN TV IN DINNING AREA
LARGE WALK THROUGH PRIVATE BATHROOM”
Talk about camping in luxury! The RV is being sold with no reserve, so if you are interested, put it on your watch list as well or, better yet, get bidding.
There is a large selection of RVs and boats to choose from throughout eBay. We often see RVs making our high value list on our Weekly Search trends posts, attesting to how fun it is to dream of what you would do if you actually owned one of these beauties.
If you didn’t know already, eBay Motors is chock full of different types of vehicles, from motorcycles to boats to RVs and more. The product managers at eBay Motors recently redesigned the entire Motors homepage so our shoppers can find these vehicles more easily. Take a look here to see the live page, or look at the photo, below:
We’ll be featuring a story about the redesigned page soon on eBay Stories in our product features section, but we wanted to give you a sneak peek of some of the fun features we’ve been working on that make it easier to find what you need on eBay (for summer, or anytime).
