Re: Boat worth price?
For that price the boat, and trailer should be in pretty good shape, and in workable condition. For comparison I paid $500.00 for a boat that had several issues, and a trailer that I had to spend $300.00 on tires to get it home, followed by new bunks, and paint, and lights, and brakes.
At that price range, and age what you are paying for is what you will get out of it,...a sailable boat. Only you can determine what that is worth to you, but I think there are cheaper trailer sailers, but maybe not exactly what you are looking for.
If you specifically want a cape dory 25, that is a very reasonable price for the boat you want.
