This thread is giving me hope that I will find a liveaboard of at least 30' in my price range... 5K lol...
After having many yacht brokers laugh at me because of my low budget. A broker for "Certified Sales" in Charleston S.C. Found me my boat. It was floating at the docks, abandoned because the owner lost it for lack of money to pay bills. And the marina & company that cleans the bottoms had a lien on it. I paid the marina and bottom cleaners a small amount of money and the boat was mine.
So yes, call marina's. Call brokers.. Never hurts to ask... Lots of deals are word of mouth.
Or go look at certifiedsales website see if they have anything in stock.
Hope I was helpful....
