Cruiser is right. The market us WAY in the buyer's favor. I see 40 footers in decent shape going for $35k and up. I saw a Formosa 51 footer that was in really good shape, but needed an engine, for $35k about two months ago.

If you're buying, it's your show. Look at as many as you can and pick the one that you want. The only things you really need to put before all else, are the engine, rigging/sales, and the soundness of the hull and rudder/steering. There are more important things, but your life depends on those the most.
