killarney_sailor is on a distinguished road
I agree with Mitiempo about the boat ID. I doubt it is a 'Lloyd's' - I suspect that this refers to it being built to Lloyd's standards - which is a good thing - and is tied in some fashion to the famous marine insurance house in England.

I would not suggest that this is not a good deal, it may well be. Have you done lots of looking around? There are lots of decent available with prices starting at $0. If you have not checked yachtworld.com, have a look and search for boats from 20 to 25' and from $500 to $2000 and see what you like. I saw a Catalina 22 for $1000 and a C&C 24 for $2000. Note that Yachtworld is not the best place to look for real bargains since they are being sold through a broker. Keep looking at eBay and Craigslist and at bulletin boards at sailing clubs for the real deals.

Good luck with it.
