Re: sailboat profits

You're not likely to make much ground on the listing price of a new hull. However, commissioning it to legal and comfortable sailing condition will cost anywhere from 25% to 50% above the basic hull. Much of that work is or can be done by your local yard after you take possession of the hull and that's where you can negotiate significantly. They may be happy to provide some options at cost, to get the profit on the hull.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
