John - I'm VERY jealous! That's the boat I want, a Spindrift 43. Is this the galley down version? I've been keeping an eye on these for about 6 years now, and I've seen them as low as $89K, and as much as $145K. Of course, those are asking prices, but the average for a Spindrift 43 in better than average condition seems to be around $120K. The predecessor to the Spindrift, the Landfall 39 (same Ron Amy design) is generally known to not be as well built, but they've ranged from $39K to $100K, with the average around $65K.

I know of a couple cruising very comfortably on a Spindrift (I think they are in the San Blas Islands now), and met another couple that has cruised theirs extensively when I was in Antigua a year and a half ago. Their beautiful Spindrift (Formosa built) had survived a hurricane bashing on the beach. You couldn't pry their boat from them...

So where is this one you've found? Is it on Yachtworld? I want to see pictures so I can live vicariously through you.
