Deverdon- Paid $55500, but had to pay the remaining part of winter storage ($1475). NADA showed low as $58,000-high at $67,000 and suggested list at $92,000.

John- The Targa model has a enclosed rear berth, the head is moved aft, and the galley is extended. The only negative is that it added a permanent folding table. The standard had a table that folded into the forward bulkhead. The big reason I wanted the Targa model is that Sabre fiberglassed the mast step. The classic model had the mast step sitting on a wooden beam (rotted).

I'll take a look into replacing the wires in the bonding system. I can't tell what is in the bilge, but it doesn't seem to be corrosion. The wires themselves appeared to be in great shape. I may try to see how much resistance they have.

The chart plotter/radar could use an update, but the b&w display wont bother me for at least the first year.

Also, the CNG system is going to get changed to propane (availability).

Here is the specs from the orignal ad on yachtworld, but it came with a lot not listed:

Accommodations & Comments
This classic design not only has a great look but is also a wonderful sailing boat. Another great feature of this fine boat is the wing keel that gives the boat a very moderate draft of 4' 6". The interior features a large v-berth area forward with a hanging locker and a vanity with sink. The main salon has a strait settee on the starboard side and a u-shaped settee on the port that converts into a double berth. There is also a beautiful bi-fold teak table on the centerline. The navigation station is located in the starboard aft part of the salon and the very complete galley is located on the port aft part of the salon. The aft cabin has a double berth hanging locker and a privacy door. The large head is behind the navigation station.
The interior is finished in teak and the cabin sole is teak and holly. The cabin cushions are blue.
