Help w/Scanmar boats reputation!


I looked at the very boat you are looking at. There is not much know about the boat because it is from sweden. The one reveiw said it was well made could sail into a rock at 6 knots with little or no hull damage. I changed my mind about the boat because it has a steel keel and rudder and will be a constant rust problem. Panch the sales man said I would have to pay to commission the boat for a test sail a $500.00 cost added to the $700.00 survey cost $1200.00 and if I dont like the way it sails I just lost $1200.00. The **** pit is tight and the traveler right behind the helm could be anoying. The boat looks like it has been well cared for. But the owners are stead fast with the price. If you get them to $45,000.0 you wil still be at $49,000.00 with tax, commisioning ,bottom, paint, Etc. And if you dont like it you could be waiting a long time for a buyer. Good luck if you go for it.
