Nearly every Chesapeake Bay marina has a number of abandoned or nearly abandoned boats. Most need a lot of work, reflecting their abandoned state. I know of one that sat in a yard for 12 years and the owner gave it away last year. The new owner did some work and got her sailing so it's possible to get something cheap.

In my experience you really don't get a bargain with a boat, you just defer the payment of money.
