As for this boat - it looks like a nightmare. But it's pretty cheap. If you don't give a damn and just want to sail one - maybe it's okay. Definitely not my kind of ride though. The scotch glasses are dirty.
I can't understand how you would not clean up a boat for photographs when selling. Those photos are the marine equivalent of curb appeal.

I vacationed on a Voyage 58 a couple of years ago. Unless the wind was just right, we were motoring. As a floating condo it was incomparable. As a sailboat, it made a nice floating condo. I would never own one.
