I just sold a well cared for 30 ft boat of reputable manufacture, for under 10K that had newer standing rigging, running rigging, roller furling and usable sails and spares. Also, the engine ran great and it came with a pilot dinghy.

The sailboat market is in the toilet right now. Many lower priced boats are going for 50% 60% of their "book value" or "list price".

Of coarse there will be weekly trips to the chandlery that are foolishly expensive. But somehow those never seem to end no matter how long you own the boat
