My dear wife has advised me that I need to either sell planes or boats or both, so she has decided for me to part with my beloved 1972 Baron E55 N53BB.

We have owned our pride and joy for the last 8 years and she has flown from coast to coast and from Canada to the Caribbean and the plane has only let us down one time with a flat tire. Other than one time she has never missed a flight nor left us AOG.

Our Baron is well equipped and meticulously maintained, all logs since new and no known damage history. Every system on the plane has been rebuilt or replaced and is 100% operational with zero squawks. Total time is 5,342 hours.

It also has full deice capability and with boots, alcohol windshield and props. It is not certified for known icing. Boots where last replaced in 1998 and are in good overall condition and operate perfectly. We replaced all deice vacuum supply tubing in 2009. We fly her year-round and have never delayed a flight due to icing and we have ice nearly every winter day in the great lakes region.

Avionics are Garmin 530w, Garmin 430, WX500 storm scope, Bendix King KWX56 radar, Bendix FCS810 autopilot fully coupled, Garmin 796 with XM Weather, Garmin 340 Audio Panel, with music input, four place audio, Norton Radome, JPI 760 engine and fuel totalizer.

Plane has immaculate paint, completed by Oxford Aviation in 2010 and touched up by Dial Eastern in 2017, no corrosion, or scratch, or even a chip. Paint is a 10. Glass is all in excellent condition.

Typically we flight plan at 9/10k ft, 190 kts TAS. Fuel burn LOP is 25 gph. We fly primarily back and forth to our offices and home in Florida and Bahamas. We can fly non stop from Akron (KAKR) to West Palm Beach (F45) 900 nm about 95% of the time unless head winds of 20kts or greater would require a stop.

We are offering the plane first to our fellow BT brethren.

Below are the specs, pics and logbook links (too follow). Please email or call me any time.

Thanks for you time.

If I was in the market, I would buy your E55 sight unseen with no pre-buy. That is as nice a Baron as they come. :thumbup:

If my wife was forcing the sale of my Baron, and a divorce wasn't possible for some reason, I'd at least list it as "Call for Price" :tongue:

Many, but not all. That was a factory option beginning 1974.

Yeah, not all. I have 142 gallon tanks (136 unusable). I wanted 166 gallon tanks.

Was almost a deal breaker for me when I bought mine.
