Re: Lash Me To The Mast Before I Buy A Boat!

As part of my research on the Sabre, I inquired on the value, for insurance purposes. I just got this today: FWIW

Quote:
Resale value is estimated to be $30,238.00, although, noting the age, the specific vessel could easily be properly priced significantly higher (or lower).

We would, therefore, encourage at least an informal "sense of things" inspection and consultation with a marine surveyor prior to making an offer, to be followed up by a thorough pre-purchase survey upon acceptance of the offer.

In any case, it is recommended that you avail yourself of a sea-trial, to include flying all sails in the inventory, a complete rigging and hull survey, and a separate engine and engineering survey of the mechanical propulsion components, preferably by an experienced technician certified for that brand of machinery, and including a spectrographic analysis of the engine oil.
