Jeanneau V Beneteau 50 & 51 ft.
Thanks for your reply. Was your sailboat you purchased an ex-charter boat, and did it require alot of work to get her back in shape? lastly, if you don''t mind, what was the ball park purchase price and the name of the charter company who sold it.? Would you recommend them as my source to find a like boat to buy? I will be looking for a live aboard in the 50 ft. range. I don''t mind a fixer, but don''t want a sunk or damaged boat in the structural sense.
I saw one boat (a Jeanneau 51 for 125k and another for 99k). I figured they had been wrecked at one time for their asking prices by the charter company( but I did not inquire as I was not yet in the market).
I really like the 1996 year Jeanneau International 50 layout and see them for sale at 189k plus from charter companies.
