Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors
That's a nice boat. Bummer that it sounds like you won't be able to enjoy it.
It would be very difficult to determine value of a 30 year old boat with the scant information you have. Was the relative an avid sailor, and did he sail regularly in recent years? Or has it been sitting in a yard for the last 10 years? Even that might give some clues.
Regardless, it likely has some value vs. being a donation boat.
